Following their poor performance at Stradey two weeks ago, no doubt they will feel that they have something to prove. Our matches up there have always tended to be close run affairs with not a lot between the sides and I'm sure it will be the same this time around. We welcome back Sonny Parker, Alun Wyn Jones and Nikki Walker into the set-up from international duty and we are grateful to both Warren Gatland and Frank Hadden for making the trio available to us. Their experience and know-how certainly gives us more options across the field and we will benefit from their inclusion. We'll be preparing for this game in exactly the same way we would any other one, which is to target a win in order to move up the league table. If you look at how it currently stands, we are just five points behind the Blues and seven points behind the Scarlets. We are well aware that just a couple of wins could see us leapfrog both sides in the table, so we have to be positive and aim for that. If we can do that, we will find ourselves in a position where we could be hot on the heels of the leading sides, and as we found out last year, if you get into April in that position, anything can happen. We are very proud of our record in the Magners League, and of winning it twice in the last three years, so we won't be giving up the title lightly." Forthcoming fixtures are as follows: Magners League - Fri 29th February - Glasgow V Ospreys - Firhill - 7.30pmEDF Energy Cup - Sat 22nd March - Ospreys V Saracens - Millennium Stadium - 5.15pmMagners League - Fri 28th March - Ospreys V Ulster - Liberty Stadium - 7.10pm
