Skipper Johann Muller was disappointed as Ulster conceded a last gasp converted try against Glasgow to slump to a second consecutive defeat in the PRO12.
“We created two or three opportunities in the first half and we didn’t finish them and that is the disappointing part,” said Muller.
“From a commitment point of view and a reaction point of view from last week you couldn’t fault the boys.
“I thought the commitment and effort was outstanding from every single one in that squad but when you create opportunities you have to take them.
“We got over the try line two or three times and didn’t get any points for it especially against a quality side like Glasgow.”
“To dominate them for 70 minutes out of 80 is a great effort but you have to take your opportunities or it will bite you.”
Muller hopes the side can bounce back with a win against Connacht at the Sportsground in Galway on Saturday night.
“We can get very negative and get down in the dumps but that is not going to help us or achieve anything.
“It is very early days and that is not the way we wanted to start but there will be a reaction from this team this week.
“If we play with the same commitment and take our opportunities there is no reason why we can’t get a result in Connacht.”
