Pool Three leaders Ulster have won their trio of group games, with John Cooney's last-gasp penalty just beating Quins 25-24 at the Kingspan last Saturday, and Reidy is determined that the province go four from four to further boost their quarter-final hopes when they visit the Stoop.

The experienced Kiwi back-rower was involved in December 2017 when Ulster defeated Quins both home and away and in last season's European double success over the Scarlets which ultimately saw Dan McFarland's side make the last eight for the first time in five years.

"The job is not even half done yet," said Reidy.

"It's important we go over there and really take it to them," he added ahead of this second straight clash with Quins who must win to stay in the running.

"I think it's also important we really start kicking on now (in the pool)" which has Clermont Auvergne sitting one point behind leaders Ulster.

"We've gone over to Quins and fronted up before and we have to front up over there again. I've got trust in the guys that we will put in a performance."
