LUCTONIANS Head Coach Ryan Watkins says his side are 'probably in the best position' as they look to snatch the Midlands Premier title.

With four games remaining the Lucs sit just two points behind leaders Scunthorpe, who have lost their last two matches.

In contrasting form Watkins' side have won their last four matches, putting them back in the title race.

Last weekend Josh Watkins ran over four tries as they won at promotion rivals Broadstreet 35-19.

Aiden Cheshire opened the scoring for the rampant visitors before Louis Silver doubled their lead.

Watkins crossed the whitewash for his first before the break to give them a 15-7 half-time lead before running over a second half hat-trick.

"We're starting to build a bit of momentum and building in the right direction," said Ryan Watkins.

"Our attack was really good and we played really good rugby and stood up to the test. It wasn't until the last 10 minutes when we ran away with it and scored with the last play.

"It was a good performance all around and good defence and attack alongside keeping the possession well which was good to see."

Meanwhile leaders Scunthorpe suffered back-to-back league defeats against second from bottom Syston.

Luctonians face bottom half clubs in the remaining four games and Watkins is aware of the threat they may bring his side.

He added: "Results around us went our way which puts a lot of pressure on Scunthorpe. "They are just two points in front of us so we will keep chasing them and putting bonus points on the board although it's in their hands.

"The last two games have set us up for a big finish as the teams we have left to play are in the bottom half of the table.

"I would expect with our quality to beat them. We are probably in the best position out of all the teams in the league.

"However, we've got to be careful of the teams fighting relegation who might play us knowing that if they don't win then they will be down.

"We have got to prepared for that but I'd rather play those teams instead of the top teams pushing for the title."

Luctonians take a break this weekend before hosting Burton on March 23.

"The boys are tired and a bit sore as we have had two really physical games so they need that weekend off," added Watkins.

"I don't see they boys relaxing as we have worked so hard to get back in this position that I don't think they will let is slip."
