Ulster head coach Dan McFarland has made four changes from last week's win over Bath for Friday night's Heineken Champions Cup clash with Clermont Auvergne in Belfast.

One of the four Ulster changes comes into the backline with Louis Ludik named on the right-wing in place of the injured Rob Lyttle.

Billy Burns, who has recently signed a two-year contract extension, will partner last week's man of the match John Cooney in the half-backs.

The three remaining changes are in the pack with Eric O’Sullivan coming into the front row for Jack McGrath.

Elsewhere, Alan O'Connor replaces the injured Sam Carter in the second row and Sean Reidy will start at blindside flanker instead of Matthew Rea.

Ulster started their pool 3 campaign with a 17-16 win away to Bath last Saturday.

Ulster team: (15-9) Will Addison, Louis Ludik, Luke Marshall, Stuart McCloskey, Jacob Stockdale, Billy Burns, John Cooney.

(1-8) Eric O’Sullivan, Rob Herring, Marty Moore, Alan O’Connor, Iain Henderson (Capt.), Sean Reidy, Jordi Murphy, Marcell Coetzee.

Replacements: Adam McBurney, Kyle McCall, Tom O’Toole, Kieran Treadwell, Nick Timoney, David Shanahan, Bill Johnston, Craig Gilroy.
