ROYSTON manager Phil Snowden says his players need to raise their game ahead of Saturday's clash at Stony Stratford.
The Crows boss was disappointed with last weekend's 3-3 draw with Harpenden and questioned the players' efforts at half-time.
He said: "They switched off and gifted Harpenden two early goals, and when that happens it will always to be an uphill struggle."
"They didn't seem to want to know in the first half. So at half time I had a bit of a go at them."
Whatever he said it appeared to work, because within 20 minutes Royston were in front with Graham Tibbals adding to his first half strike and Dave McMurrough finding the net before Harpenden equalised with 90 seconds remaining.
Snowden said: "It was a good second-half performance, and that's what I want to see this Saturday - and a few of them have to put a bit more effort in."
