Michael Bradley brings the curtain down on seven years in charge of Connacht at Ulster and has called on his side to end his tenure on a high.
The long-serving coach will be replaced by Eric Elwood and is desperate to end a run of 17 straight defeats on the road in the Magners League.
They are also chasing a first win in Belfast in 50 years and if they win by the unlikely margin of 66 points they would qualify for the Heineken Cup.
But Bradley said: “That’s not going to happen but the opportunity will come around again.
“It’s not going to happen this year but it could happen next year. It’s part of a process and Connacht are moving forward, getting strong, the belief is strong, the lads are playing for each other and they are all good indicators.
“We still see Ulster as a yardstick to measure our season against, even though there’s nothing to play for in terms of qualifying for the Heineken Cup.
“Our focus remains at improving our away form and getting a result at Ravenhill.”
Bradley has made four changes to the Connacht starting XV that were edged out by Toulon in the Challenge Cup last weekend.
Brian Tuohy, Bernie Upton, Ronan Loughney and Mike McComish all come into the starting XV while Ulster have made two changes to the side that won at Edinburgh last time out.
Ireland international Stephen Ferris’ fractured cheekbone rules him out with Chris Henry coming in at blindside and Ian Humphreys gets the nod over Niall O’Connor at fly-half.
