LUCTONIANS head coach Ryan Watkins says last Saturday's postponement may be a blessing in disguise.

The Kinglsand outfit saw their National League 2 North game at Leicester Lions called off shortly before kick-off due to the pitch being unplayable.

It means that Lucs will have to play catch-up in their bid to stay up, but Watkins is confident his team can do that.

"It was frustrating but maybe in a funny way it worked out for the bes," said Watkins..

"It's another opportunity for us to play in dryer conditions, so maybe it was for the best.

"We were given a pre-warning that the pitch wasn't fit and we would be playing on one of the back pitches, but it was continuous rain and the pitch was not of the quality you would expect in National League Two.

"I think it was the right call to make."

Luctonians still enjoyed a training session last Saturday, with their next game taking place at Mortimer Park against Sedgley Park this weekend.

"I think it's a place they're not too fond of and we've got home advantage," added Watkins.

"We've got games in hand on the sides above us, but we know we have to win them and get points on the board as quickly as possible."
