Ulster are in Wales tomorrow as they look to keep alive their hopes of making the Pro12 playoffs.

Les Kiss' men take on Ospreys, who are fourth in the league, one point ahead of the visitors.

It follows a 22-20 defeat away to Munster, and a 24-24 draw at home to Cardiff Blues.

This is the penultimate match for Les Kiss' side, with Leinster at home on Saturday 6 May.

Stuart McCloskey will start in the centre, while Robbie Diack will put on the number 8 jersey.

Speaking on Q Radio and Ulster Rugby's The Breakdown podcast, captain Andrew Trimble is optimistic.
