ROYSTON Town manager Paul Attfield said this Saturday's game between his team and Hatfield Town will be a clash of two titans.
Royston Town remain unbeaten away from home this season, having won all six of their games away from Garden Walk.
Yet the trip to Hatfield could prove to be a tricky task as their opponents have yet to lose at home.
Hatfield have won six and drawn one of their seven home games this season and currently lie third in Division One.

Attfield said: "I would expect the Hatfield Town game to be probably our toughest test this season down on paper.
"They have an unbeaten home record; we have a 100 per cent win record away in the league so something will have to give."

Royston lost both Luke Robins and Ross Collins to injury in Saturday's home win against Sporting London e Benfica, and both are likely to be out for some time.
This, Attfield says, will allow him to use other players from what is one of the strongest squads in the division.
He said: "Obviously having half a dozen injuries will not help our preparation but some players have been waiting in the wings for some time and now they will get opportunities.
"Hatfield are a decent team with good experience and youthful talent and it doesn't surprise me at all that they are high in the table and I would expect it also to be a physically tough game, our hardest this season.
"We must be up for the task."
n Royston's match at Brache Sparta on Tuesday evening was called off due to bad weather.
