Wroxham’s late blitz stuns Diss

Wroxham put newly promoted Diss Town firmly in their place at Trafford Park as they recorded an emphatic 5-0 success.

The Yachtsmen scored four times in the final half hour to confirm their superiority on the night and make it 19 points from a possible 21 so far this season.

The hosts led 1-0 at the break courtesy of a Ben Thompson header and really went to town after Danny Easlea had been sent off for retaliation.

A Damian Hilton penalty made it 2-0 and headers from Andy Easthaugh and Graham Challen doubled Wroxham's advantage before Jordan Rocastle put the icing on the cake by making it five against his former club.

The win wasn't enough to take Wroxham top, with Dereham beating Gorleston 2-0 at Aldiss Park to stay two points clear, having played one more game.
