Leicester Tigers will go into Saturday's must-win clash with the Ospreys in positive mood after a fine recent run of form.
The 2001 and 2002 Heineken Cup winners know that anything less than a victory at the Liberty Stadium is likely to see them make a premature exit from the continent's top competition.
But while such a scenario would simply create unwanted pressure for most sides, Dan Hipkiss insists last season's beaten finalists will arrive in Swansea full of confidence after five successive wins.
"That is five wins in a row for us and that is a good position to be in," said Hipkiss, who started last May's Murrayfield defeat to Leinster that saw the Tigers just miss out on a third European crown.
"That win against Saracens really did something for us, as did the bonus point against Wasps.
"We didn't play as well as we could have against Viadana but that's really going to kick us into action in training," Hipkiss told the club's official website.
"We have done well as a side going away to places in the past but we know the challenge. Across the board, they are as good a unit as there is out there."
