Bath v Ulster: Teams
At the Recreation Ground, Saturday January 23, kick-off 3.45pm
Ulster have named Niall O'Connor at fly-half for their must-win Heineken Cup clash with Bath on Saturday.
The Magners League side need a five-point haul on their travels to the Recreation Ground if they are to have any hopes of making the quarter-finals.
Even with a bonus-point win, Ulster could still miss out on a place in the last eight as they need other results to work in their favour.
Captain Chris Henry insists the visitors "need not fear anyone", even though they have yet to register a win on the road in Europe this season.
Win or bust
"This game is like a cup final; it is literally win or bust," he said.
"We have to go to Bath with confidence because we know from some of our performances and results this season, we need not fear anyone."
O'Connor's selection at number 10 in place of Ian Humphreys is the only change from the side that defeated Edinburgh 21-13 last time out.
Bath are not going to do their opponents any favours, though, even if they are only be playing for pride this weekend
