Aylesbury United’s run of matches against teams in the top half of the table continues today (Saturday) as they travel to Dunstable Town (kick-off 3pm).
Joyce admitted his side would be underdogs for the match away to the Bedfordshire side, who currently sit second in the Calor League Division One Central.
He said: “We always have good games against Dunstable and I can see the match being another open and attacking affair.”
United go into the game off the back of a second defeat to Dunstable’s title rivals Daventry in less than a week, which sandwiched a 0-0 draw against in-form Egham Town.
Joyce was pleased with his side’s efforts in ending Egham’s winning run in 2014 and an improved performance in a 2-0 defeat to Daventry in midweek.
He said: “I made a few changes to the squad last week, which included leaving out Stacey Field, so we were perhaps disadvantaged because we lacked a little bit of pace.
“Daventry outplayed us (in the first match). I can quite easily see them finishing in the top two at the end of the season.”
