Cardiff Blues director of rugby Phil Davies expects his side to return to winning ways in the near future despite their latest defeat.

The Welsh outfit have now lost 10 of their last 12 matches following the 34-21 Heineken Cup loss at Montpellier - their fourth successive reverse in Pool Six.

Davies said: "It has not been easy but we are a pretty resilient bunch. Our time will come, we just need to stay determined.

"The frustration that we are feeling at the moment will fuel our fire to get some victories. We have a game plan, it's developing and we just need a few wins.

"Ultimately we were not good enough but I'm proud of that in a lot of ways. We fronted up from start to finish.

"It really wasn't easy out there but we showed a lot of spirit and a lot of pride.

"They are a top side with a massive pack of forwards. But the pleasing thing for us is that we stuck at it.

"We looked pretty competent at the scrum, we pinched a couple of lineout balls off them and won our own balls. Generally there's a lot of things to be pleased with."
