Connacht will install temporary terracing for this Friday's inter-provincial clash with Munster to facilitate the demand for more tickets.

Buoyed by back-to-back wins in the Challenge Cup over Oyonnax and Worcester, Kieran Keane's men go in search of a much-needed PRO14 win in the Sportsground.

The western province have just one win from six games this evening and a victory over their Conference A rivals would be very welcome.

A statement on the added terracing read: "Connacht Rugby have announced that they will be installing additional temporary terracing in the Sportsground for the Guinness PRO14 Championship clash with Munster on Friday (K.O. at 7:35pm). The decision was taken due to the level of ticket sales for the interprovincial derby.

"The extended terracing is being installed at both the Bohermore and College Road ends of the Sportsground to facilitate the increased demand.

"Adult and juvenile tickets for the additional terracing are on sale immediately and supporters are encouraged to purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment. Gates will be open two hours before kickoff so patrons can arrive early and enjoy the match day experience."
