Exeter have insisted they are fully focused on their domestic encounter with London Irish despite the forthcoming Amlin Challenge Cup trip to Paris.
The Chiefs will take on Stade Francais in the quarter-finals of the competition on Thursday.
However, assistant coach Ali Hepher claims talk of the game has been banned - especially as the squad are still in the mix for the play-offs.
"We're not really looking back at what has happened, we are looking at what is in the future and that's really exciting at the minute," said Hepher.
"The guys have put in some cracking performances over the last few weeks and they are getting just rewards for their hard work.
"They have put a lot of effort into their self-improvement and you can see that coming through in a lot of their play. As far as we are concerned it's another game; it's an important game; and we just have to attack it.
"All we are really worried about is not performing and that's how we are going to approach the game."
The Chiefs have named an unchanged line-up for the match - meaning No.8 Richard Baxter will make his 400th appearance for the club during a 15-year career.
London Irish have made one change to their line-up as they look to bounce back from their loss to Leicester last time out, with Adrian Jarvis replacing Dan Bowden at fly-half.
"We were pleased with the effort and intent last week and will need to produce the same performance this weekend against an Exeter side that is currently playing well," said London Irish head coach Toby Booth.
"There is still much to play for this season, so we will go down there to be competitive and look to come away with a result."
