Coach Patrick Horgan said, "We know we missed a golden opportunity to extend our lead at Rodney Parade and we will need to perform better at Pontypool if we are to achieve our goals.
"We have great respect for Pontypool who had a very good win over Cardiff last week. They have a similar approach and attitude to ourselves and we know we will be in for a battle before we return to The Gnoll for two games next week against Seven Sisters on Monday and Cross Keys on Friday."
