Corey Kingston notched his sixth goal in his eighth Saints match after a long clearance from keeper Dan Smith beat the Tangerines' defence after 11 minutes and he latched on to it. The home side missed then missed several chances.

After the break, Aaron Taylor headed Diss level from a 73rd minute corner but Alex Macintosh was then sent off, reducing the home side to 10 men.

Diss then saw a shot cleared off the line and sub Callum Olpin miss a good opportunity before Ryan Swift was denied by a Dan Smith save. But Matt Cook scored a winner for Diss in the 88th minute to send Saints home with nothing.

Saints boss Kaufman said of the hosts' winner: "It was never, never a goal.

"Their striker has had a shot which has gone wide, no-one has touched it and the referee has given a corner and they scored from it.

"We were really good, to be fair, especially in the first half.

"Jake Miller who was suspended last week was excellent. He came straight back into central midfield. Corey came up with a really good goal.

"Joel Smith, an under-18, hit the crossbar just before they got the winner so it could have gone either way.

"Pav Kalzuny, also an under-18, played 75 minutes and did really well, just ran out of steam.

"We're nearly there. They're third in the league but our game management has got to be better and our our playing of set-pieces has got to be better."

Wisbech St Mary: Dan Smith, Willmott, Watson, Chilton, Goult, Beckett, Harnwell, Miller, Williams, Jefferson, Kingston. Subs: Humble, Joel Smith, Kalzuny.

Wisbech St Mary now have back-to-back fixtures with fellow strugglers King's Lynn Town Reserves, starting away on Saturday, December 28.
