Ulster are completely focused on getting the victories they need to secure a Magners League play-off place according to head coach Brian McLaughlin.

Ulster slipped to third after their defeat to Irish rivals Leinster last weekend, but with two rounds of league action remaining, the Belfast based side are targeting two more wins to see them through the semi-final stage.

Connacht are the visitors to Ravenhill this weekend and then the Ulster travel to Rodney Parade to face the Dragons on May 6.

“We have to win the last two games, no doubt about that,” Sais McLaughlin.

“The most important thing for us is to make sure that on Friday night at Ravenhill against Connacht we get the result we need. We’re not looking any further than that.”

“The first 15 minutes (against Leinster) we were just completely off the mark. What was disappointing was that we went from what was one of our best defensive displays of the season (against Northampton) to possibly our worst.

“We rested up well; we felt we were in a good place, but we didn’t play to our potential in any way, shape or form.”
