Tommy Bowe isn't expected to make a return from injury for the game however Craig Gilroy and Declan Fitzpatrick, who both suffered concussions against Montpellier, are hopefuls.

With a European quarter final at Ravenhill at stake, the countdown is now on for the final stand at the revamped grounds to be ready in time.

Coach Anscombe said work will be complete by the start of April, and the team are confident they can avoid defeat against the Leicester Tigers.

"This is a very special place to play with 14,000 people here to have it with 18,000 would make it that even more daunting for the opposition," he told UTV.

"To win the Heineken Cup you have to be able to win away from home and it is a challenge that we are faced with and we have done pretty well at.

"We have to embrace the challenge we have against the formidable team in Leicester.

"We have to belief in ourselves to go out and do it and luckily enough we don't this week and we are still qualified. It is not the end of the world."
