The top four teams in the RaboDirect PRO12 tournament may have been decided by Ulster's victory over the reigning Champions Leinster in the last round of fixtures, but the final finishing positions of all four of those sides has yet to be settled.

On Friday two of the teams go head to head at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea, with the Ospreys hosting Glasgow. The Welsh Region are currently in fourth position, but trail the table topping Scots by a mere four points, and will hope that they can close the gap with a win.

The Swansea Ospreys have won four successive PRO12 fixtures, the last game that they lost in the tournament by co-incidence, was against Glasgow Warriors at the Scotstoun back in Round 15. Only three teams boast unbeaten home records in the PRO12 this season, and the Ospreys are one of them, their last defeat in the tournament being back in February 2014, when Munster were their visitors. However, their record against Glasgow in recent meetings does not make for pleasant reading, with the last seven matches between the two all being won by the Scottish outfit. The last Ospreys win coming back in March 2011 when they won by 37-6 at the Liberty.

Ospreys might be in the middle of an inconsistent run at present, having lost two of their last four matches in the RaboDirect PRO12, against Irish giants Munster and Ulster, but they still occupy second place in the table, and they will hope that their hope form at the Liberty Stadium on Friday night will see them cement their top four place with a victory over the Glasgow Warriors. The Welsh region has suffered just a single defeat in their last 13 matches in Swansea at the Liberty, in the PRO12. A 12-18 reverse when they faced Ulster on 4th October.

Glasgow Warriors on the other hand are trying to climb back up the table and re-establish themselves as genuine play-off contenders. They led the table after five rounds, but have suffered two defeats in their last three fixtures, which have seen them slip to fourth place in the table. Despite their recent loss of form, the Glasgow Warriors can still boast an astonishing away record, that has seen them beaten only once on the road this season, in any competition. A loss in the Heineken Cup away to the holders Toulon, when a poor first half display left them too much to do, to snatch victory in an improved second half performance.

Few sides can point to a record that has seen them win five out of their last six visits to Wales, as the Warriors can, since January 2012, and they are currently on a run that has seen them beat the Swansea Ospreys the last four times that they have clashed, and they are unbeaten on the Ospreys turf since 5th March 2011.
