**Connacht may be glad to get away from Galway to face a Dragons side who have a similarly poor home record of late.** \n\nThe Westerners’ defeat to the Ospreys last time out stretched their winless run at the Sportsground to four matches in all competitions. \n\nBut they head to Newport on Friday to tackle a Dragons outfit who are on an identical stretch at Rodney Parade, with their last win on home soil coming in October. \n\nConnacht sit second in Conference B, 15 points adrift of leaders Munster, while the Dragons are fifth in Conference A with two games in hand over the top three. \n\n**Tale of the tape** \n\nThe Dragons’ last win at home – against Zebre in October – is their only victory at Rodney Parade since February in any competition, while they last won in the Guinness PRO14 at Glasgow on December 5.
