Leicester Tigers captain Martin Corry is taking nothing for granted as they prepare for Saturday's quick-fire Round 4 return clash with Bourgoin at Welford Road...
The Tigers won 28-13 in France but the England captain said: "You never come out of a game feeling completely happy about a performance, there are always things to look at and work on, while they showed just how dangerous they are with a little bit of ball.
"We can't afford any defeats and we can't afford any slip-ups. The game in Bourgoin had an element of a slip-up because we scored three tries in the first half and then did not get the bonus point. We've got to make sure we're right on the money this weekend.
"We'll be expecting Bourgoin to put in a performance as strong as the one we saw in the second half in France.
"Their line-out drive in particular was effective but we were able to cancel it out and, with a firm pitch at Welford Road, we would hope to have more impact in our forward play.
"Bourgoin have their backs to the wall in this competition and they have to come out and give it their absolute all. We are going to be very careful of that and we need to make sure our defence is lively and that we put in a strong display in key areas.
"I think the wet and heavy conditions played a major factor in our game at Bourgoin last weekend. I thought we played very well in the first half but they came back in the second half and we have got to be wary of that this weekend."
But Corry is planning to take full advantage of having the passionate Leicester crowd behind the Tigers on Saturday.
"I always find playing in France a great challenge," he said. "You have to go there and show that you're mentally prepared and I think we did that last Friday.
"Having said that, the crowd at Welford Road is something special and we're looking forward to putting in a big home performance for them.
"I think we have got a fantastic squad and I believe we showed that during the autumn internationals when we were missing several players.
It's a very competitive squad and it'll be great to have Julian (White) and Ben (Kay) available for selection again.
"But it's a tough squad to get into, Leo (Cullen) and Louis (Deacon) had great games in Bourgoin and Martin Castrogiovani and Marcus Ayerza did very well in the front row. So, even when we are missing players we have a very strong squad from which to choose."
