Rob: we must raise game for the run-in

Ulster's Rob Lyttle has warned the province have no time to feel sorry for themselves after back-to-back defeats.

Having been knocked out of Europe by Leinster two weekends ago, the side's return to PRO14 action was a forgettable 30-7 defeat to Glasgow at Scotstoun on Friday night.

But thanks to results elsewhere, they stayed second in conference B and can clinch a play-off spot and place in next season's Champions Cup with a win against Edinburgh in Murrayfield on Friday (7.35pm), while their last game of the season is back at home against Leinster two weeks later.

"We can't feel sorry for ourselves, we need to get right back on the horse for Edinburgh and then Leinster," said Lyttle. "We've missed one chance but we've a few more to come."

The wing believes rediscovering their clinical edge will be key for the run-in.

"We weren't as clinical as we have been in recent weeks," he added. "We had to turn up at 100% and we didn't do that."
