After picking up a try bonus point in a defeat in Toulon, Glasgow's win at home over the Chiefs looked to have set them up for a major revival. But nobody saw back-to-back defeats coming against the Blues and those two poor performances have left Gregor Townsend's men anchored to the bottom of the Pool.
Glasgow cannot win the Pool, but they could climb the table and challenge for second place if they win both remaining games with bonus points. It's a big ask!
The Chiefs, still smarting from their double defeat to London rivals Harlequins and Wasps over the festive period, could still theoretically win the Pool with 17 points. But that will require a Blues win in Toulon, a Warriors victory over the champions and two bonus point triumphs for the Chiefs.
Baxter will believe his side could finish second and possibly bag a ticket into the Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-finals and so expect two competitive performances from the west country side. The next two weekends will also be showcases for their two England Elite squad members, Tom Johnson and Jack Nowell, to give Stuart Lancaster a nudge ahead of 6 Nations selection.
