DISS Town, after mixed cup results this week, host Downham in the Norfolk Senior Cup on Saturday.
Then on Tuesday it's back to Ridgeons League action, away at Gorleston. Last week they were knocked out of the FAVase at Mildenhall but beat Yarmouth in the Ridgeons Division One Cup.
Diss travelled to Mildenhall's Recreation Way in the FAVase to take on Premier Division Mildenhall, who had won four of their six league games.
For 50 minutes it looked as though an upset was on the cards but the game turned when Brendan Foley was sent off for violent conduct.

Early chances fell to both sides, Steve Spriggs shooting just too high for Mildenhall and the Diss reply seeing Ben Deacon draw a fine save from Shaun Marshall.
With only 10 minutes played Diss had to defend with determination to keep out shots from Spriggs and Ryan Foster.

The Tangerines took the lead when Danny Jones released Danny McKail to run after the ball down the Diss right. His centre was curled into the far corner of the net with a left-foot shot by Deacon.
Mark Camidge ensured that Diss kept the lead when he made a good save from Carl Murkin.
Mildenhall had more of the play following Foley's dismissal. Tony Scully equalised following a pass from Owen Paynter. Robbie Harris put Mildenhall ahead 10 minutes later.
The next goal came from Paynter in the 73rd minute. Spriggs was allowed time and space to turn and shoot in to make it 4-1.
McKail and Deacon linked up well as the game went into added time with Deacon crossing to the far post for Partridge to head in.
DISS beat Yarmouth 3-0 in this Division One Cup game and will now travel to Stowmarket in the first week of November.
Moody was brought down and Deacon scored from the penalty. Partridge cut in from the left and hit a low right-foot shot from 22 yards to make it 2-0 in the 62nd minute. Foley played a through ball and Best outpaced the defence before hitting a fierce shot for 3-0.
