Ulster's Marty Moore has warned the province can't leave themselves chasing their own tail come the end of the season.

Ulster face Zebre at Kingspan Stadium tonight (7.35pm) sat one place outside the play-off spots in the PRO14's conference B and Moore is under no illusions when it comes to their margin of error.

"Coming off the back of European games, we said we didn't want to be chasing our tails coming into April and May and needing to win four games in a row for a play-off spot," said the tight-head prop.

"That's been the mentality every week since Europe and that continues on through this week.

"Definitely every point counts every week so we have to get as many as we can and not leave it too late in the season like last season."
