Vets notched a deserved win - although they came away from Garden Walk disappointed not to have extended their superiority beyond Nick Humphries' strike.
The hosts started in a confident mood, with early efforts from Steve Holden, Carlo Silenti, and Peter Leete testing the Knebworth goalkeeper.
You may also want to watch:
Leete looked sharp from the off, leading the Royston line to great effect, and going close with a number of rasping drives.
Paul Lewis also saw a good effort saved by the keeper, with Holden endeavouring to outdo his old Cambridge City teammate Leete, with another powerful strike as The Crows went into the interval in a commanding position.

Town then introduced Brian Cannon and Mike Jackson, and along with the energy of John Thorpe, they dominated the second half.
The long-awaited goal arrived midway through the half, when Jackson and Silenti combined to free Leete, and when the striker played in the overlapping Humphries, the midfielder made no mistake with a confident finish.
Because of his side's dominance, Royston's second-half keeper McArthur was a virtual spectator , and with the impressive performances of Colin Bowers, Holden, Silenti, and Leete, the rest of the season looks promising.
Royston Town Vets: Chaffey; King, Stubbs, Flack, Bowers; Silenti, Clark, Holden, Humphries; Lewis, Leete. (Subs): McArthur, Jackson, Thorpe, Cannon, Allen.
