MANAGER Paul Attfield said he believes his team can beat Amersham at Garden Walk on Saturday (November 22), but has warned them against complacency.
The Crows beat their opponents 7-0 in the same fixture last season and are currently top of Spartans South Midlands League Division One having won their last nine league games, a run which has seen them score 37 goals and concede just five.
But despite their fantastic form, the Royston boss said opposition teams have a habit of raising their game against high-flying opponents and his team must ensure they remain focused.
"If the players approach the game with the same attitude they have done others recently then I would be confident of winning at home.

"Amersham started the season strongly but have lost their last five games. That doesn't mean we will underestimate them because we have learnt when we are top or near the top that lower teams raise their game to try and grab a worthy scalp."
Royston's injury situation is looking better with both Conor De Lacy and Jamie Babbage expected to be back in the squad for tomorrow's game.
