ROYSTON Town's promotion hopes suffered another blow on Saturday following a 1-0 defeat at New Bradwell St Peter.
The Crows have now picked up just six points from their last six games, with Saturday's loss only their second league defeat since the beginning of November.
In an entertaining game, Mark Kalek's confident strike was enough to see New Bradwell St Peter home, with his strike beating Crows keeper Damion Williamson.
Manager Paul Attfield and assistant Tony Galvin, will be hoping their side bounce back tomorrow night (Tuesday), when Royston entertain Haringey Borough in what looks set to be a must win game.
Royston president Alan Barlow said: "Obviously it's disappointing to lose, but New Bradwell are a very good side and more than capable of getting a result. Of all the teams that I have seen this season they are the team I have been most impressed with.
"They're difficult to break down and in terms of the way they play, they are very effective.
"I still think we can get promotion, and the game against Haringey looks to be a must win for us. A win would move us up to second and put us right back in the mix."
Haringey Borough have now overtaken both Royston and Kentish Town, whose game with Ampthill Town was postponed, following their 3-1 win over Cheshunt Reserves.
Hoddesdon Town maintained their stance at the top with a 1-1 draw against Arlesey Athletic.
