Football: Knights on quest to slay Munster.

Byline: By ORLA BANNON

MARK McCall insists Ulster won't underestimate Munster in Friday night's Celtic League clash at Ravenhill just because the visitors are without their international players.

Ulster will be at full strength apart from Ireland new boy Andrew Trimble while Munster, three points ahead at the top of the table, will be missing many frontline players who haven't been released by Eddie O'Sullivan.

However, experience has taught McCall to be wary.

"Okay they're missing some players but we know they have tremendous strength in depth," he claimed.

"People who think this is a good time to play Munster, underestimate Declan Kidney and Munster.

"They have a very motivated squad and people who can step in."

Having won four out of their last five Celtic League matches, McCall is looking to continue the winning streak.

"This is an important fixture, we want to keep the momentum we've generated in the last few weeks going," he said.

ULSTER SQUAD: B Young, J Fitzpatrick, S Best, N Brady, R Best, J Harrison, M McCullough, R Caldwell, N Best, N McMillan, R Wilson, S Ferris' B Cunningham, A Maxwell, T Bowe, J Topping, P Steinmetz, J Bell, K Maggs, A Larkin, D Humphreys, K Campbell, I Boss
