USA international Greg Peterson insisted that Glasgow Warriors are keen to finish the European Champions Cup on a high despite having dropped out of contention for a play-off spot.

The Warriors have won 12 out of the 13 games in the ongoing season of Pro 14 that sees them at the top of Conference A but they were not able to replicate the same form in the Champions Cup where they lost all the four games and are positioned last in Pool 3.

The Scotstoun outfit will head to Dublin on Sunday to face on table toppers Leinster, who are yet to lose a game in the competition following which they host the Aviva Premiership champions Exeter Chiefs on 20th January and Peterson believes performing well in the next two rounds will help them overcome the mental barrier.

"I haven't been playing much this season and it has been hard watching those European games. It has been a whole other level for us and at times we have probably adapted poorly.

"But this week we have changed our approach and solely focused on ourselves and what we do best in the PRO14.

"We're really focused on bringing that into the next two games. All the boys selected want to put their best foot forward and these games will put us in good stead for the rest of the PRO14.

"We want to right those wrongs from the games against Leinster and Exeter because they were pretty upsetting results.

"In my history here Leinster has always been a tough match.

"So if we can get one-up on them in the European competition, knock them down a peg and make it harder for them to qualify, so be it.

"We want to try to do everything we can. You always want that bit of mental edge. "
