LUCTONIANS will be looking to make their home advantage count against Chester this weekend.

The game is also the club's annual 'Lucs in Pink' charity fundraiser at Mortimer Park (3pm kick-off).

Head Coach Ryan Watkins knows that his side face a tough task against last year's National League 2 North runners-up.

"It will be a tough test," said Watkins.

"They are quite a strong side who have been together for a long time.

"It will be a good game and we need a big performance.

"We need to show a lot of passion and have a big impact at home."

Last weekend Luctonians picked up a bonus point despite falling to a 23-17 defeat at Hinckley.

The visitors went ahead early on with Callum Young driving through, which was converted.

Despite Hinckley replying Josh Phipps kicked a penalty to give his side a 10-5 half-time lead.

However, three second half quick tries saw Hinckley win the points.

Lucs did leave with a bonus point after Owen Randell's try was converted by Phipps.

"We had quite a young team and we dug in to come away with a point," Watkins added.

"For that I'm proud of the boys as we stuck together as a group.

"They looked to intimidate us and we stepped up to that.

"To be better we have got to look after the ball better and have got to be more clinical.

"We had a few injuries and unavailability but the young guys did well.

"I doubt many league teams had 18-year-olds at number nine and 10 with Josh Phipps and Owen Randell."
