Full time Glasgow have done just enough to clinch the win. Both sides were poor throughout in a game littered with handling errors, in the end the boot of Duncan Weir was the key with his drop goal sealing the win. Former Connacht man Nathan Troy scored the only try of the game 9 minutes from time.. report to follow.

75min Five minutes to go here, Ulster will need something special now to win, that spark that been missing all night

70min accidental obstruction by Ulster, Glasgow put in to the scrum
69min Chip over the top is gathered in the 22 by a Glasgow man, its a bit scrappy out there at the moment

62min Sale bound Richie Gray comes on to the biggest cheer of the night
61min Good work from Glasgow but Touhy will be annoyed with himself for not letting go, no support from his fellow players. Glasgow have it
60min Marshall does well with the ball from the scrum and Spence does even better to break the first tackle and get some yards
60min Scrum goes down again and needs to be re-set
59min better scrummaging from both sides, and quick ball works. But sadly the ball is spilled as Glasgow attack.. Ulster scrum
58min Danielli goes off for Ulster while Cusiter is also off with a blood injury but he shouldn’t be too long
57min Glasgow’s error strewn second half is reflected in the market where they are now 2 to win this.. Ulster dropping to 2.04
56min Ulster win the penalty and D’arcy gets a pat on the back.. Humphreys kick to touch is good.

41min Great start for Ulster who make it a three point game thanks to the boot of Humphreys
Half time The whistle goes and a poor half comes to an end. The game has yet to find its flow and has been riddled with errors so far. The Ulster line out has been woeful and Brian McLaughlin will look to sort that at half time. Warriors number 10 Duncan Weir has impressed with his three kicks so far and they are enough to hand Glasgow a 6 point half time lead. Glasgow 9 – Ulster 3
