Ahead of the game, Diamond said: “The message I’ve given the squad is that we need to end a disappointing season on a high. We’ve got two home and two away games left, and we should be able to get 10-12 points from them, if we carry on in the same vein of form after Christmas, except for the blip against Northampton. We need to perform, starting on Friday night against Worcester.”
