That scenario would also ensure they enter the quarter-finals as the tournament's top seeds, setting up a home quarter-final against the second-best placed runner up and a huge shot at a third Heineken Cup semi and a repeat of their 2012 run to Europe's showpiece event.
"Our next three weekends are going to be as tough and physical as rugby gets," Anscombe told the Belfast Telegraph.
"We've got to embrace that, and, of those three big ones, two of them (Munster and Montpellier) are at home and that's where we want to be.
"Our destiny is in our hands and if we can get a win at the weekend over Munster that gives us momentum to take to Europe. If we can get all three wins we'll be sitting nicely.
"We've got to make sure that we're up for it physically against Munster, because if you let them physically dominate you, you're gone. If playing Munster doesn't get us excited, well nothing will. They're the league leaders and they're going well."
As for Ferris, the Ireland and Lions international has been handed an extended contract, thought to be between three and six months, having been out injured since November 2012.
The 28-year-old's career remains in the balance as he recovers from ankle and knee problems but the latest news is a definite step in the right direction with regards to the Ravenhill faithful eventually seeing one of their favourite sons back in action.
"The contract will obviously give Stephen a real chance to continue the hard work he has done already. He has a smile on his face again and has come through a hell of a lot in the past few months," added Anscombe.
"Everyone is working with him to give him every possibility of coming back. But we are not putting any time frames on it. Deadlines can get you anxious and nervous and then people start to take short cuts. That is the last thing we want to do in Stephen's case.
"He's starting to have some self-belief and I don't want to burst that bubble by saying 'here's a date, he has to be there'. It's our job to encourage and support Stephen in the work he is doing and to give him hope and faith that something is around the corner without putting a deadline on it."
There was more good news for Ulster in the shape of the likely return of a host of big names, with five first-class forwards all set to play their part in Europe.
Back rowers Chris Henry, Nick Williams and Iain Henderson have all recovered from injury, while second row and skipper Johann Muller and All Black prop John Afoa are also back having been left out of the squad that lost to Leinster at the weekend.
"They're all back in the mix which is good, but the challenge is that some of these guys have been out for a period of time. Particularly Nick and Henderson and Henry, who have been out for six to eight weeks, so, as good as they all are, it sometimes can take a little bit of time, too.
"So, though it's great that they are back in the mix, I think you've got to be realistic about what you expect to get out of them as well."
