Thetford Town, who this week hit the coast to play Gorleston, entertained Whitton for their first Saturday fixture in six weeks.
It was Whitton who started the sharper and created some early chances which Town dealt with.
It was 20 minutes before Town mounted their first attack and 25 minutes before their first corner, which was cleared.
Whitton had their best chance on 37 minutes when a forward ran through but Bowden stood his ground and the shot went wide.
Town nearly took the lead on 40 minutes when a long ball found Dixon but his lob just went the wrong side of a post.

Town had a good penalty appeal turned down early in the second half when Dixon appeared to be brought down in the area but the referee waved played on.
