CROWS boss Paul Attfield is disappointed with the desire of his players following their back-to-back defeats.

Last week it looked as though a third placed finish was on the cards judging by previous performances - but that now looks to be a stretch too far after Tuesday night's loss to Hertford.

"It just looks like, at times, the players want to meander through the season and finish it off," said Attfield.

"It's a shame because we had third place to play for but that no longer looks like being the case now."

Before the two defeats, Royston had shown excellent form since the turn of the year as they surged from mid-table into the top six in March which also included a purple patch of nine wins in 11 games.

They are also the second highest goalscorers in the division with an impressive 100 goals from 36 games so far this campaign.

But Attfield says he was far from happy with how the good form has dried up.

He added: "I don't think we wanted it enough in the end against Hertford.

"We had a go late on but we just didn't turn up in the last 15 minutes of the first half and first 15 of the second, and that's when we conceded the goals and we just didn't look interested."

"We had a lot of the ball but didn't create enough and it was the same in the previous match where, again, we failed to show enough desire, and it's cost us again."

The Crows will aim to put things right this Saturday when they welcome Biggleswade United to Garden Walk.
