ROYSTON head coach Kevin Green has targeted all three points on Saturday and says his side's clash with Old Tottonians is a "must-win match".

The Crows' form has slipped of late, but Green believes they can bounce back against the struggling north London side.

He said: "They are certainly beatable and realistically this is a game we should win.

"The club has a pretty good record against them and hopefully that will continue on Saturday.

"And I want to see 100 per cent concentration out there, because that is what has let us down in recent weeks.

"Despite playing some very good rugby, our lack of concentration has cost us, and as a result we have been punished.

"We know how we can play, and we have shown that already this season, and like I always say 'rugby is a game played with the top two inches of your head'.

"We have a lot of ability and some great ­individual talent, but for me that hasn't been seen so far this season.

"I've seen glimpses of it, and Saturday's fixture will be a good opportunity to see a lot more."

Green will welcome back centre Shaun McDermott and fly-half Rob Turner, as Royston near full strength following a series of injuries and absences.

"We're starting to get a bit of continuity again.

"We've had to play ­players out of position a lot this season, which is never ideal.

"But that's no excuse - we still should have done a lot better."

Green also said he was looking for a big performance from the returning McDermott, as well as captain Steve Clay and forwards Steve Patmore and Scott Easy.

"They are our key ­players," said Green.

"Patmore and Easy lead from the front and I'm looking for these guys to take the game to Old ­Tottonians and dominate from the start.

"We're all looking forward to the game and after a two-week rest the boys are certainly up for it.

"They've looked good in training and I'm confident they can get back into their stride with a much-needed win.
