ROYSTON manager Paul Attfield's eyes will be fixed firmly on Saturday's clash between Kentish Town and Hoddesdon, a game that could make a big difference to Royston's promotion hopes.
Attfield said: "It will be an interesting game, but all we can do is focus on our own games and look for maximum points.
"And if we can play with the energy and desire that we showed against Haringey, I would be confident of achieving that."
However, if The Crows are successful in seeing off Arlesey Athletic at home on Saturday, followed by away victories at Buckingham Athletic, Cranfield United, and Sun Postal Sports, will 70 points be enough for promotion?
"It's going to be extremely close," said Attfield.
"If I'm honest, I'm not sure if 70 points will be enough.
"It should be. I had thought between 70-73 points would be all right for second spot, but we'll just have to wait and see.
"There have already been so many twists and turns, it really is anybody's guess.
"We have to start with the game against Arlesey, and take one game at a time.
"They will be a tough team to beat, because they've already taken points off the top teams this season, but it's a game we should win.
"And it would be nice to finish our last league game at Garden Walk with a victory!"
Royston Town entertain South Midlands Premier Division side Tring Athletic on Tuesday in the semi final of the Herts FA Charity Shield.
Tring currently occupy eighth spot, but have taken only one point from their last four games.
The winners will face either Welwyn Garden City or Oxhey Jets.
