A second half try for flanker Chris Henry proved crucial in a tense and at times scrappy game at Scotstoun Stadium on Friday night.

The result puts Ulster top of Heineken Cup pool four.

Glasgow opened the scoring in difficult playing conditions after 21 minutes with centre Peter Horne kicking the home side into the lead.

But the visitors hit back minutes later with good pressure creating a penalty opportunity which out-half Paddy Jackson converted to level the scores at three all.

Jackson was on target again after 27 minutes with a second penalty as the Ulstermen took a 6-3 lead into the break.

Concerted pressure finally paid off on the hour mark with the Ulster pack driving over the line for Henry to score a vital try which Jackson converted.

The visitors drove home their advantage a short time later with Jackson once again punching Glasgow to stretch the lead to 13 points on 71 minutes.

Another penalty from Jackson went in before Nikola Matawalu responded with a try for Glasgow, but Mark Anscombe's sideclosed the game out to keep their 100% record in the Cup.
