Ulster moved up to second in the Magners League with a sixth win in succession as Scarlets were consigned to a 20-18 defeat.

Tries in either half from Ian Humphreys, along with two conversions and penalties from Ruan Pienaar, brought Ulster their highly valuable four points though Scarlets, whose own play-off hopes may have suffered irreparable damage, pushed them close but had to settle for a losing bonus point.

With three games remaining, Brian McLaughlin's squad will need to keep their winning streak going, and play with more consistency, to secure their place, though their immediate thoughts will now be on Sunday week's Heineken Cup quarter-final clash with Northampton Saints.
