Glasgow v Connacht PRO12 Preview
Glasgow Warriors’ 20 match winning run at Scotstoun in the Guinness PRO12 was ended by Scarlets on Saturday, but they have not lost successive home games in the competition since November 2013.

Connacht beat Dragons 29-23 last Friday but have not won back to back encounters in the tournament since March. Connacht’s only wins in Scotland since September 2010 have both been against Edinburgh at BT Murrayfield.

Glasgow have won their last seven matches against Connacht with the most recent Irish success being 37-8 in Galway in February 2011. The Warriors have not lost at home to Connacht since September 2010 at Firhill Arena.
