Flanker Roddy Grant believes versatile Scotland back Chris Paterson holds the key to Edinburgh overcoming Bath at the second attempt in the Heineken Cup.
Rob Moffat’s troops were downed 16-9 by the Guinness Premiership strugglers at the Rec at the weekend thanks to tries from Pieter Dixon and Michael Stephenson as well as two Nicky Little penalties.
Paterson – Scotland’s all-time leading points, try and appearance holder – replied with three penalties of his own and Grant believes he will once again be called upon when Edinburgh bid to turn the tide this Saturday.
“The game was hugely disappointing but one of the first things that came out of our discussion was that we believe we can beat them next time and put it right,” said Grant.
“Chris Paterson kicked some really good penalties for us and that got us back into the match during the first half.
“And we know exactly what they are going to do next time. We are really up for it already. We are going to look at the videos and the individual things to work on and I’ve no doubt we will turn up and get the victory.”
