Grant seeking swift revenge

Roddy Grant hopes his Edinburgh side will take the opportunity to claim swift revenge for Monday's derby defeat to Glasgow.

Edinburgh suffered a 30-18 loss at Firhill in the first of back-to-back Magners League encounters with the Warriors.

With Glasgow travelling to Murrayfield on Sunday, captain Grant told the Edinburgh website: "It's a horrible feeling and it won't be good looking through the game. It's a great thing to have another crack at them. We get another shot and we'll make sure we take it."

The last time Edinburgh played at home was in front of an empty Murrayfield as bad weather forced the Heineken Cup clash with Castres to be played behind closed doors.

And Grant is looking forward to hearing the home roar on Sunday.

"It's great when you hear a lot of noise," he added. "It certainly lifts the team and if we can get a good crowd, really noisy and vocal, it will be very helpful."
