Ridgeons League Division One
Diss Town 2, Ipswich Wanderers 1
DISS Manager Rob Taylor made two changes to his starting line up for the match against third from bottom Ipswich Wanderers. Diss created first half chances, but failed to take them as Matty Hill was called upon to make two excellent saves.
Luke Catchpole was just wide in the 12th minute after creating an opening for himself when he collected the ball, ran and hit a 22 yard shot. Six minutes later he took advantage of poor defending but shot high. A header from Soanes at an Ed Cussons corner hit the bar in the 29th minute with his follow up shot blocked. The loose ball found Catchpole and his shot was blocked. Hill made a superb diving save to his right to tip a 22 yard shot by Danny Carnell wide via a post three minutes later.

In the 34th minute Callum Moran collected a through ball and rounded Hill to slot in from an acute angle on the left. Soanes clipped the bar with a long range effort in the 42nd minute but again Hill came to the rescue two minutes later as he turned a 20 yard shot by James Buckle around the post.
Camillo Douglas had a chance to put Wanderers further ahead in the 68th minute when given the ball by Diss but his curling shot was turned away by Hill. In the 75th minute Jake Berry sent the ball over from the right for Steve Wright to bring the ball down at the far post and force Jack Foster to make an excellent block. The ball spun away and was not cleared. The loose ball was put over the line from a yard out by Soanes and was signalled as a goal by assistant referee Chris Pollard.

Foster used his feet to block a 79th minute shot by Partridge from 15 yards after a back healed pass by Soanes. The winning goal came two minutes from time when a Mark Shadrack pass released Partridge to run on the left and cross low for Stuart Jenkinson to sweep in from four yards out. In added time a Diss counter attack allowed Partridge to run from his own half but his shot from 14 yards out was off target to the relief of the travelling support.
Diss team: Matty Hill, Mark Shadrack, Ed Cussons, James Wilson, Steve Best, Luke Catchpole, Andy Moody, Jake Berry, Ben Soanes, Mark Fowler, Steve Wright.
Diss subs: Danny Partridge (for Moody at half time), Danny Jones, Stuart Jenkinson (for Wright 80 mins), Terry Minshull and George Wilson (for Fowler at half time).
