Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, as Ely took on Diss in what was a bit of a meaningless fixture. Ely were definitely the stronger of the two teams, so it was good that they came ahead with a win ahead of the cup final on Monday.
Ely's first real chance came on 27 minutes when Murray's header just missed. One minute later the Robins took the lead from a wonder strike from Kenny Smith and Diss had hardly even got in Ely's half. That was all about to change though when after the centre Diss got in Ely's six yard box and forced the ball over the line. The Diss player more or less punched the ball in the goal, but neither the linesman or referee saw it, so the goal was given.
For most of the game Ely dominated and on 61 minutes they got the winner when Taz's shot was saved and Josh Bridgeman scored from the rebound. They could have had more with Murray coming close on several occasions, but a win is a win.
