Michael Bradley is adamant that Connacht Rugby are still right in the quarter-final hunt - and that back-to-back wins over Rugby Rovigo will reinforce their last eight claims.
"We were obviously very pleased with the result last weekend," he said. "We went to Rovigo looking for a win in order to keep our qualification hopes alive so to have got the bonus point is a big boost to us.
"It was a tough game as Rovigo defended heroically but the match was hampered by a very heavy pitch after a lot of wet weather so it's difficult to gauge what sort of game we are going to see this weekend.
"We showed some good continuity play and put together a lot of phases which is a positive we'll take forward, as well as our scrummaging, which was particularly strong.
"Of course you're always looking to improve but there's nothing I took out of the game as an area of concern. We have a couple of injury worries in Jonny O'Connor and Keith Matthews but they are still in contention for this week's game, although I think we have enough depth in the squad to cover their possible absence."
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
