Sports Mole previews Friday's Aviva Premiership encounter between Worcester and Wasps at Sixways Stadium.

Worcester Warriors will be desperate to end their recent run of poor form when they host London Wasps in the Aviva Premiership on Friday.

Richard Hill's side are eight points off the relegation zone following five straight league defeats.

In contrast, fifth-placed Wasps have enjoyed five wins in their last six matches and could move back into the playoff places with another triumph this weekend.

Jon Clarke and Chris Pennell both return for the home side, who make four changes in total.

Wasps also bring in four new faces in the form of Andrea Masi, Nick Robinson, Tim Payne and Phil Swainston.
