"We missed a few tackles against Toulon and allowed them to get some momentum," said Warburton.
"They were very hard to stop but I was pleased with the way we didn't give up.
"The effort was definitely there. The win against Munster last week was a big moment for us and we did ourselves proud against Toulon, although we would have liked to have come closer.
"Next week will be a big game for the club, an opportunity to get a win and not finish bottom of the group. It will definitely be the priority for us."
Alex Cuthbert returned to action at Stade Felix Mayol, following a facial injury. He capped his comeback with a try as the Blues salvaged a bonus-point and he is desperate to reward the Arms Park faithful for their support.

"Hopefully we will be at full strength and will be able to give the fans a good show."
