Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
"We let ourselves down actually, and we've got to improve those areas. As Michael has alluded to already, the players were pretty disappointed in the dressing room afterwards.
"The Scarlets have a couple of long term injuries, but team wise I wouldn't expect too many changes from last weekend.
"The scoreline was pretty close in the second half and we know that it will be competitive this weekend. They have beaten London Irish away, and not many sides do that, so we're going into this game knowing that we're in for a battle.
"They won't lay down because they have some very good and experienced players and I've no doubt that the likes of Simon Easterby and David Lyons will be trying to work the oracle this week.
"They have already got a good result away, so they know that they're capable of doing it.
"Though they have been in the wilderness in Europe for a number of years, to be leading the pool after the opening two rounds and having given themselves a chance of qualifying, they'll be giving it everything."
