Northampton fly-half Ryan Lamb has set his sights on being the first team this season to defeat Ulster when the duo collide at Franklin's Gardens.
Ulster are currently on a 12-game winning streak in all competitions, which has seen them beat Glasgow and Castres in their earlier Pool games.
Lamb knows the back-to-back fixtures are going to be tough but is confident that with Saints' internationals now back, they have a good shot.
"It is going to be a tough ask," he told Sky Sports.
"They are a very good side, probably one of the best in Europe. They reached the final last year and they've had an unbeaten start this time around.
"They've a strong squad with strength-in-depth in every position but we've a strong squad of our own, especially as a few of the England boys are back.
"It will be a good test to see where we are as a club. We will look at their strengths - and to be honest they have a few - but in a game like this it is about putting in your own performance and making sure that you do everything right.
"We've some key players back from injury and the internationals and that will lift us. It will be a tough challenge but it will be a fantastic occasion at Franklin's Gardens."
Former Northampton number eight Roger Wilson will make his first return to Franklin's Gardens since leaving the club for former employers Ulster. And Lamb has highlighted the dangerous ball-carrier as being someone his team-mates need to monitor on Friday.
"He is going well," Lamb said.
"He was out at the start of the season but he's coming in to his own now.
"He is a very dangerous player and is someone we will have to keep an eye on.
"I spoke to him a couple of times last week. We had a bit of banter but the game wasn't mentioned."
