The visitors drew first blood with an Eric Escande penalty but the Ulstermen hit back with two quick tries from Robbie Diack and Ruan Pienarr at the Ravenhill rugby grounds.

The South African converted both to give his side a 14-3 lead.

Montpellier then responded with a try from Robins Tchale-Watchou, converted by Eric Escande, before Pienaar and Escande each landed penalty goals to make it 17-13 at half time.

In the second half, Pienaar scored a monster kick but the French side soon reduced the gap with a penalty goal from Escande.

John Afoa raced through on 57 minutes to add Ulster's third try, with the conversion from Pienaar putting the hosts 27-16 up.

Pienaar then looked to have scored a try of his own but it was ruled that he had been held up.

Ulster were roared on by a capacity crowd as they pressed for the fourth try to secure their progression but were unable to take the extra points.

However the result keeps Mark Anscombe's side top of Pool 5 and on track to qualify for the quarter finals of Europe's top club competition, with Treviso facing Leinster on Saturday.

Ulster will face Leicester next weekend in a game that will decide the winner of the group.
