Royston Town’s tiring schedule seemingly caught up with them at the weekend as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at struggling Bedford Town.
Having played 12 matches since the start of October with a depleted squad, the Crows looked flat although they did take a third-minute lead.
Ryan Ingrey’s gamble paid off as the Town keeper’s rushed clearance struck the lurking striker and rebounded into the unguarded net.
Royston had a chance to double the lead but from there, Bedford dominated and drew level just after the half hour.
Stuart Smethers headed home a poorly-defended corner to tie proceedings.
