Cardiff Blues head coach Danny Wilson has turned his side's focus to their upcoming home games after they suffered a 13-7 loss to Treviso.

Missed opportunities cost the Blues on Saturday as the home side won their first game of the campaign, leaving Wilson "bitterly disappointed".

Next up Cardiff will face Leinster and then Ulster at the Arms Park and Wilson is looking to launch a response against the two Irish sides.

"It now becomes massive that we win both against Leinster and Ulster at home," he told the Blues website. "We've got to take advantage of being at home, and we are capable of doing that.

"We've missed a massive opportunity over in Treviso, with sides around us in the league losing.

"I'm bitterly disappointed, but at the same time it's a good lesson for a young team and squad that will play this period now.

"We'll never get that many chances again to score a try," admitted Wilson. "We've got to look at why we've created so many opportunities and we're not scoring.

"It's a different surface for us to play on, it's a very wet and muddy pitch in Italy, but we still backed ourselves to score and should have.

"We've shown this season that we can score points, but against Treviso we did everything but score tries.

"What we've got to learn from it is if we create the same opportunities again, and defend in the same manner, we've simply got to finish."
