Ospreys Head Coach, Allen Clarke, said:

“There’s been a positive reaction from the whole squad in training this week; it’s now essential we carry that into the match at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

“Our execution needs to be better and we must be more clinical to finish off the opportunities we are creating. We dominated many aspects of the game versus the Dragons but we need to translate that dominance onto the scoreboard.

“We know that we are going to have to be at our best against a Cardiff side who are confident on the back of two wins over the Christmas period. The boys are really looking forward to the challenge and to playing at home again in front of our supporters who created a brilliant atmosphere when we were last at home against the Scarlets. Their support really energises the team and is truly appreciated ”
