"That win in France was a long time ago. I think we've all got to move on from that. The fact is that we've got them at home and we're going to try and bring some of the momentum we showed last week into the game," admitted Ulster head coach Mark Anscombe, whose men beat Munster in a domestic derby last weekend.
"They're away and it doesn't look as though they can qualify. The one thing you never know with Montpellier is who they'll choose.
"The team that we played was totally different to the one they put out against Leicester Tigers - and that side nearly tripped Leicester up. That just shows that there's not a lot of difference in the 36-37 players in their squad.
"We won't be fooled into expecting them to field a weak side. They've got international players in their squad and they're not going to be coming here for a holiday weekend."
Anscombe's side could receive a double boost with the return to fitness of both Irish hooker Rory Best and Springbok lock Johan Muller. Best has been out of action since breaking his arm against the All Blacks on November 24, while Muller has been struggling with a calf injury.
Montpellier have lost their last six away games in the Top 14 and haven't developed into the force everyone had predicted after they reached the quarter-finals last season. But the scare they gave Leicester Tigers in Round 3, when they went down 42-31 scoring four tries, is proof enough of the potency of their attack if they are in the mood.
Ulster know they need to keep on winning to try to stay ahead of the Tigers, who they meet at Welford Road in the final round of Pool matches next week.
