hi yes you can use ditri matting but i would strongly recommend secureing floorboards thouroughly & plyboarding over the boards for best long term results!
sometimes its better to spend a little now to preboard floor than suffering movement in the floor and haveing to remedy at alot more expense later on!
hope this helps!

Hi there, I agree with Dynamik Ceramiks , and you should really have a movement joint where the two types of substrate meet.

Hope this helps
