THE Crows gifted Harpenden a share of the points on Saturday with a performance that disappointed manager Phil Snowden.
And after losing four of the players who helped beat Harpenden the week before, things went from bad to worse when Royston gifted the hosts two goals inside 20 minutes after two defensive mistakes.
However, Graham Tibbals got the visitors back on track with a powerful header midway through the half.

However, another lapse in concentration allowed Harpenden in with just 90 seconds on the clock.
Snowden said: "It was just one of those games. At 2-0 down, I'd have taken a draw but having got back to 3-2 I really thought we were going to win. So when they equalised it felt like we had lost the game!
"We switched off and gifted them three goals - and when you do that it's always going to be an uphill struggle."
