Ealing Trailfinders are expecting a bumper crowd of 2,000 for what promises to be their biggest match of the season against London Scottish.
But they will need to show a little more consistency than on Saturday when they dropped their first points of the season in an error-strewn 18-18 draw away to Rugby Lions.
The result saw Ealing drop to second in the table behind London Scottish, adding further spice to this weekend's Vallis Way showdown.
The early signs were promising as Ealing took an 11-0 lead against the Lions.
Ben Ward kicked an early penalty before scrum-half Pete Hodgkinson scored the game's first try.
Ealing won line-out ball on the right and moved the ball left where Lee Best made the initial line break and offloaded to David Howells. The winger burst through two tackles and beat a third and final defender with a simple pass for Hodgkinson to run in the score. Ward's conversion struck the post.
Rugby stuck at their task and were denied a try after number eight Shaun Brady picked up from the back of a hastily retreating scrum and found a gap to canter into the Ealing 22.
Ealing's captain Mark Lock managed to drag his opposite number down short of the line and allow the defence to reorganise and force Rugby to concede a penalty to relieve the pressure.
Ward kicked Ealing further ahead on 30 minutes with his second penalty after the Rugby hooker, Sam Overton, was spotted punching by the assistant referee.
The last 10 minutes of the half was all Rugby, who laid siege to the Ealing line. The home forwards pounded away relentlessly in the right corner and eventually flanker Stuart Riding managed to squeeze over to send the Midlanders in 11-5 down at half time.
Playing with the wind in their backs in the second half, Rugby kept Ealing pinned in their own half and fed off a catalogue of Ealing mistakes to take control of the game.
First, full back James Hawken kicked a long-range penalty to close the gap to 11-8.
Then the home side took the lead, scoring a carbon copy of their first try when substitute Phil Greenbury burrowed over following a prolonged siege. Hawken kicked the conversion to make it 15-11.
Rugby had their tails up now, but were guilty of overexuberance and penalised at a scrum on the Ealing 22. Hodgkinson took it quickly and moved the ball left and the so far quiet Ali James tore through a huge gap and raced upfield before passing to Neville Edwards to restore the lead for the visitors. Ward's conversion put the visitors 18-15 ahead with more than 10 minutes to play.
The lead didn't last long as Hawken kicked a second massive penalty to draw the teams level. But a third long-distance effort fell short.
Ealing did have a chance to win the game at the death when James was brought down just short of the line, but the resulting scrum went awry and Rugby were able to hold on for the draw.
This Sunday's top-of-thetable clash between the league's two unbeaten sides (2pm) will feature a live band, kids' attractions, a magician and a bouncy castle. Entry is free for members and U16s, £7 for non-members.
* Northolt won their first match of the season against London Irish C team last sunday.The final score (47-17) did not reflect the competitive nature of the game as the Irish side lost two players to injury but battled bravely for the entire game.
Dean Knight impressed in his debut at scrum half, going over the line to score four times and kicking five conversions. New player Dorian Haliday also impressed.
Northolt are away to High Wycombe next and hope to continue their good form.
