Bristol Bears director of rugby Pat Lam said his side should be wary of the threat from Northampton Saints as the two teams lock horns with each other in the 19th round of the Gallagher Premiership on Tuesday.

Bristol had tremendous success since the tournament restart with three wins from five matches and are at third place in the table with 53 points.

With the play-offs around the corner, Lam would want his side to secure a home semi-final with four more rounds remaining in the league stage.

Northampton have struggled post the Covid-19 suspension phase as they managed a solitary win in five matches but Lam is not willing to take Chris Boyd's men lightly.

“I think Northampton are a dangerous side - they play some great rugby, so certainly for us it’s about having good control on the game, because if we don’t get control on the game, we saw what’s happened in spurts of our game when we’re under pressure, so that’s been the focus," said Lam to the official website of the club.

“Get your detail right, play as a team and there will certainly be opportunities that we need to take, and we certainly have to limit the opportunities that we give them, because they can attack well".
