Ospreys forwards coach Jonathan Humphreys wants the Ospreys to be fully focussed when they face Zebre in their PRO12 clash at the Liberty Stadium on Friday.
Zebre are yet to win a match in their first season on the PRO12 and have accumulated just five points all season.
And although they are nine points adrift of the Dragons, who are second from bottom on the table, Humphreys said they will not take the Italian outfit lightly.
And he is aware that Zebre will be fresher than the Ospreys, who battled to secure a 14-3 win over the Dragons at Rodney Parade on New Year's Eve.
"We've got a real short turnaround, it's a real massive game for us on Friday night," Humphreys the South Wales Evening Post.
"Zebre possess a physical challenge. They gave us a real tough game out there earlier in the season and we are expecting the same again on Friday.
"We won't be taking them lightly at all.
"It's important that we keep our momentum going with some big challenges, including Europe, ahead of us.
"It's important now that we don't undo the good work of the last month or so by not going into this game with the right focus, and although we've only got a few days to prepare, we'll be drilling that into the players.
"We have enjoyed some big crowds and great atmospheres at the Liberty over the last few weeks and we'd love the same again on Friday.
"It's not on TV and there's a great ticket deal available, so hopefully we'll have plenty of fans there."
