Preview: Worcester Warriors vs. Leicester Tigers

Sports Mole previews Friday night's Aviva Premiership clash between Worcester and Leicester at Sixways.

Leicester Tigers can temporarily go to the top of the Aviva Premiership table on Friday night when they face Worcester Warriors at Sixways Stadium.

A fourth consecutive league victory would see Richard Cockerill's lead the standings by two points going into the weekend.

Meanwhile, ninth-placed Worcester have failed to put together two wins on the bounce this season and they go into the match having lost 33-27 to bottom-placed Sale Sharks last time out.

Tom Croft returns from a neck injury to make his first appearance of the season for the visitors, while Steve Mafi, Thomas Waldrom and Mathew Tait will also feature.

The hosts have made six changes in total, including a recall for Josh Drauniniu following a lengthy absence through injury.
