However, Newmarket controlled the second half and ran out comfortable winners. The loan period of goalkeeper Ben Nower ended in the week and he decided to join Felixstowe and Walton.
This meant a return to goal for Mark Camidge in the only change to the Diss team which had won at Cornard United. He made his first save in the third minute when he dived to hold a header from Andy Eady at a disputed corner.

The Tangerines came close to scoring when Ben Deacon hit into the side netting. Newmarket went ahead when Camidge pushed a shot from Ardul Sannoh up on to the bar and Lee Salmons tapped in from two yards out.
Diss equalised when George Wilson played the ball through and ex-Tangerine Ricky Cornish tried to cut it out and play it to a fellow defender but only found Deacon.
He ran from 35 yards out and beat the advancing Sean Greygoose with a left-foot shot.
Camidge made a save to keep out a Colin Vowden shot at a corner and turned a shot from the edge of the penalty area by David Grainger round a post later.
The last action of the first half saw Danny Partridge and Luke Catchpole have shots blocked after a run by Andy Moody before Alan North put the ball over the bar.
Jamie Thurlbourne sent the ball into the danger area and some poor defending meant that Grainger was free to head home for Newmarket.
The Jockeys made the game safe when a clearance struck Partridge on the arm and Thurlbourne netted the penalty. JA Collins Electrical MoM: George Wilson.
