Ulster took a heavy 30-7 defeat at the hands of Glasgow in their last game, but are hoping they can regroup in time to secure a PRO14 playoff spot.

The side have just two games to go and still sit second in their conference, behind Leinster who have already shored up the top spot with a 20-point lead.

That leaves Ulster in a battle with Benetton and Edinburgh and for the final two playoff spots.

Ron Herring was the sole try scorer for Ulster on Friday night, going over for his seventh of the season – making him the province’s top scorer.

But their opponents Glasgow ran in four tries to take the comprehensive win and deal the Ulstermen’s campaign a blow.

Head Coach Dan McFarland hopes his side can get back on track though.

“At this stage, we’re going to have to improve,” he said.

“We’re pretty banged up and bruised, but we have to regroup, review and move forward.”
