Ely City manager Brady Stone spoke to deputy sports editor Russell Claydon following recording a big three points at relegation rivals Diss Town on Saturday.

After Robins’ skipper Austen Diaper had put then ahead with a close-range finish after 22 minutes, a quickfire second-half double from winger Josh Townsend earned all three points following Matt Dixon’s leveller on the stroke of half-time.

Ely, third-from-bottom in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division table, are only a point off FC Clacton, who they travel to on Saturday (3pm), having played six games fewer than the Essex side.
