Despite an impressive first-half performance against Clermont, new London Wasps signing Andy Goode wants the club to be aiming higher.
Wasps lost out 36-27 in Montferrand but three first-half tries took the home side by surprise, as Wasps led 27-13 at the break.
The home side took control in the second half, but Wasps clung on to their lead until the final ten minutes, and two late penalties gave Clermont a 36-27 victory.
"It's great to get our first hit out, we scored some really good tries and went in ahead at half-time, but what we spoke about in the changing room after the game was that, despite it being a good first performance, we aren't happy coming to places like this and nearly doing well," said Goode to the Wasps website.
"To be up like we were at half time we want to then go on and win those kind of games.
"We did some very good things this evening but then towards the end of the game we lost a bit of shape, which Clermont exposed us with. We are in a good place, we have worked very hard up until now but we now have a real grasp of what we need to now work harder on before the season starts.
"There is no doubt that they are a very good side, we played really quite well against what was the second best side in Europe last year but we want more. We can walk away from this game with our heads held high but we are disappointed not to get the win that we could have gotten."
Goode also commented on the club's gruelling pre-season regime, with the former Saracens, Leicester, Brive and Worcester number ten left impressed by the work ethic of the squad.
"Coming to this club from the outside I can truly say that there are a great bunch of boys here," added Goode.
"The work ethic in terms of pre=season has been really impressive. I haven't seen a group of players work that hard in my career and I have had to step up to be able to keep up with them.
"The desire and willingness to improve has been second to none. The coaching set up in Dai, Stephen Jones and Brad Davis is steering us in the right direction and everyone is working really hard to make their vision come to fruition.
"The young talented guys here aren't that young anymore; Christian Wade is a British and Irish Lion, Joe Launchbury is a regular England starter. There are a lot of good things ready to happen this year.
"I really enjoyed pulling on the Wasps shirt for the first time this season, it has been a long pre-season leading up to that point, but now I'm hungry for more. We have a big week ahead of us and then another chance to sharpen our game against Connacht next weekend."
