Newport Gwent Dragons second-row Luke Charteris has stated his side have no fears about visiting Ravenhill on Friday for their rearranged Magners League game against Ulster.

It was be the Welsh regions, fifth successive away game and will also be a quick turn around for the side, following Sunday’s defeat in the LV= Cup semi-final to Gloucester.

"We've done pretty well there in the past and we've got to put a performance in," Charteris told the South Wales Argus.

"It's a quick turnaround again and Ulster are a good team so it's going to be tough but we've got to show character.

"We know what let us down against Gloucester, we made too many individual errors, we didn't keep hold of the ball, we got turned over in contact and made handling mistakes.

“It's up to us to put it right now, we've got a run of home games after this one which will give us a good chance of climbing the table.

“We haven't become a bad team overnight, the boys are understandably a bit down but we've just got to take the loss and push on. We mustn't let this affect our momentum, Gloucester are a good team but we gifted them the ball and they took their chances well."
