Diss Town suffered a second comprehensive home defeat at the trot on Boxing Day when they were well beaten by Debenham LC.

The Tangerines were unable to build on Saturday’s excellent away win as their neighbours scored twice in each half to come away with the points.

Debenham took the lead after just 10 minutes through James Whatling and doubled their advantage midway through the opening period when what looked like a harsh free-kick was awarded just outside the box and Lamell Howell tucked it away.

The game was over as a contest on 65 minutes when Brendan Heath found the back of the net with a real screamer and Tanner Call took advantage of a defensive mix-up to bundle the ball home to complete the home misery 13 minutes from time.

The Tangerines hit the road on Saturday to take on Needham Market Reserves and then face a tough home fixture against leaders Woodbridge the following weekend.
