Gloucester head coach Bryan Redpath says this week will be a time for some serious questions to be asked - with the correct answers hopefully coming to the fore against Glasgow on Sunday afternoon.
The Cherry and Whites were well beaten 33-11 by the same opponents at Firhill on Friday night and Redpath admits that a huge improvement will needed to turn things around this weekend.
Some serious soul searching has already taken place since the Round 3 defeat and Redpath is hoping that Gloucester's status as a real rugby-only town will have a positive effect on how quickly those improvements can be made.
"We can show a lot of footage," said Redpath, when discussing how Gloucester can avoid a repeat of Friday's performance.
"It's the one thing you can do; you can turn round and look it straight in the face on the video and say 'Is that good enough for someone who's playing for Gloucester?'
"There were some Gloucester people who travelled up and they base a lot of it on passion and heart and soul. The video never lies.
"Monday's and Tuesday's are for getting all this out in the open. If you walk around Gloucester, you won't get a chance to dwell on it. If you do, you'll struggle.
"We'll have 11,000 or 12,000 Gloucester supporters to answer to (on Sunday). That's a big thing around Gloucester - when you walk around the streets, people are quite willing to tap you on the shoulder and say, 'that's not god enough'.
"You've got be brave, you've got to accept some criticism that comes your way, and it will come our way and naturally it should."
With one victory from their opening three Heineken Cup games so far this season, Redpath admits that reaching the knockout stages has become a tall order.
However, despite his obvious disappointment at the manner of his side's performance, the former Scotland scrum-half is delighted that Gloucester have the chance to make amends for Friday's defeat by challenging the same opposition almost immediately.
"I think it will be very hard now to go through. But I've not thought about in the longer term," added Redpath.
"We've got to sort out what happened in Glasgow back at Kingsholm next Sunday. We've got to get our head around that as a whole squad.
"It (playing Glasgow again so soon) does make it easier in that respect when we perform like that.
"There were a lot of one-on-one, basic things that we can ask questions about - why we didn't turn up, why we didn't do some of our basics particularly, and why we looked a lit bit lackluster.
"I'm chuffed that we've got them back in Gloucester next week because we didn't give a proper account of ourselves on Friday night."
