Edinburgh hooker Ross Ford is confident his side can return to the victory trail when they face the Dragons at Murrayfield on Friday.

Two weeks ago, Alan Solomons' troops secured a 23-18 victory at London Irish which booked their place in the last four of the competition but they suffered heavy 34-3 defeat at home to Munster in the PRO12 on Saturday.

And Ross – who has played in 85 Tests for Scotland – believes they can turn thing around against the Welsh region this weekend.

"The weekend was not ideal by any stretch of the imagination but we know we're a good team when we perform well," Ford told BBC Scotland.

"We've got an opportunity to go out and train and rectify the things that need to be done."

A victory will mean that Edinburgh will become the first Scottish side to reach a European rugby final.

"If you had said we'd get to the semi-final we would've jumped at the chance," added Ford.

"We've got ourselves here through some hard work and given ourselves an opportunity now."
