LUCTONIANS continued their impressive away run in the Midlands Premier with a 24-7 success at second-from-bottom Doncaster Phoenix.

And the Mortimer Park club, who have risen to fourth in the table, have a chance to put further pressure on the top three when they visit basement club Syston, whom they beat 64-7 at home earlier in the season, on Saturday.

"Syston have been struggling but they have picked up of late and are making an effort to get out of trouble," said Luctonians' head coach Ryan Watkins.

"But I would back our current form and it's really up to us. We are not conceding points and we're a tough side to beat."

Luctonians moved ahead at Doncaster when Sam Boxhall landed a penalty with only two minutes on the clock.

But the home side quickly switched the action to the other end and went in front with a converted try.

Luctonians regained the lead with a penalty try and then extended their advantage with a push-over try from Alex Reid which Boxhall converted.

Boxhall added the coup de grace, going over for the final try which he converted himself.

"Sam Boxhall controlled the game and Aiden Cheshire was immense as a ball carrier," said Watkins.

"Connor Deignan has really stepped up since he came into the side and the progress that he's made has been really pleasing."
