Diss Town host Downham in Ridgeons League Division One on Saturday, hoping to get back on track after drawing with Swaffham.

Then on Tuesday they host Thetford, who have had a mixed season but have drawn with two table-topping sides so are a danger to the fourth-placed Tangerines.

Meanwhile, the reserves travel to Whitton Reserves on Saturday.

Diss Town 0, Swaffham Town 0

DISS Town had already beaten Swaffham twice this season but as both teams returned to action after a lengthy weather interruption a goalless draw meant that Diss had drawn seven of their ten league games played at home this season.

Diss had the greater share of the possession and created a few reasonable chances but lacked a cutting edge in attack.

Swaffham looked dangerous at corner kicks and free kicks, but in truth, neither side looked likely to score. Mark Shadrack was high with his shot after a Stuart Garner corner caused problems. Dan Wynne had a shot cleared off the line after Xavier Huckle saw his low shot palmed away by Lee Brookes.

Danny Paynter shot wide and Kyle Plumb had a shot held by Ally McAnally late in the first half as Swaffham had a good spell.

Brookes made a good diving save to his left to push away a quickly taken free kick from

Jason Hunt. Soon after Garner was inches high with a fierce shot after a fine run and cross by Jake Burton.

Jordan Rocastle shot across the face of goal from a very tight angle but Swaffham came close to snatching the points in the 77th minute when Garner cleared off the line from a Plumb header.

The save of the match came when Brookes arched back to tip over a 30-yard Burton shot which seemed destined for the top corner.
