Sports Mole previews Friday's Aviva Premiership encounter between Gloucester and Worcester at Kingsholm Stadium.

Worcester Warriors will be eager to end their recent run of poor form in the Aviva Premiership on Friday when they travel to Gloucester Rugby.

Richard Hill's side, who are currently seven points off the drop zone, have lost their last four consecutive league matches.

Fifth-placed Gloucester come into the fixture at Kingsholm Stadium with one win from their previous four outings.

The hosts have made two changes to their starting XV as Dan Murphy and Henry Trinder replace Nick Wood and Tim Molenaar.

Meanwhile, Blair Cowan, Josh Matavesi and Ed Shervington are all recalled by the visitors.
