Ospreys head coach Steve Tandy says his side must keep up their momentum, after moving to second in the PRO12 with a bonus-point win against Edinburgh.

The Welsh region ran in four tries on Friday to seal a successive Scottish scalp after beating Glasgow Warriors.

"You can build momentum but it's got to be about the performance and detail," Tandy told BBC Radio Wales.

"We know there's elements we need to tidy up but that's to be expected with the [Wales] boys coming back in."

Ospreys welcomed back Alyn Wyn Jones, Justin Tipuric and Keelan Giles from Wales duty and they sealed another five points after their bonus-point win in Scotland the week before.

"They've just come off the back of beating South Africa and putting a performance in but they were just as excited as seeing the boys win up in Glasgow," Tandy continued.

"They were eager to get back to the group which is always pleasing to see."

Tandy's side initally moved to the top of the PRO12 at full time after their win against Edinburgh, but Munster's late drop-goal victory against Glasgow sent Ospreys down to second.

"We've got to worry about ourselves but we can't control what Glasgow or Munster, who are on a really good run, but we've got to perform in games," Tandy said.

"Hopefully towards the back end of the season we will be there or thereabouts."
