Glasgow Warriors head coach Sean Lineen turned his attentions to next Saturday's trip to Montpellier after his side claimed a 20-15 Heineken Cup Pool Three win over the Frenchmen at Firhill.

Lineen rated his side's second Heineken Cup success from three games a C+ and knows a vast improvement will be required in southern France.

He said: "We've got to go with a realistic ambition of winning the away game. It's going to be incredibly tough."

He added: "If we play like we did in the first half today, we'll be 30 points down. We need to make sure we go across there, get the basics right.

"They've got some fantastic players and when they get their momentum going they're incredibly difficult to beat."

The win was sealed by Federico Aramburu's 76th-minute try, with Duncan Weir kicking four penalties and Ruaridh Jackson one. Montpellier's tries came through Eric Escande and substitute Masi Matadigo - a late score which secured a losing bonus point - with Martin Bustos Moyano adding five points from his boot.

"Unfortunately, giving them the bonus point takes the gloss off a bit," Lineen added.

"We needed to tighten up there. We got a bit carried away trying to score, going from two metres from their line to them scoring at the other end shows what they're capable of."
