IAIN BALSHAW will return to action tonight when he lines up at full-back in Gloucester's Guinness A League side against Leicester at Kingsholm (7.45pm).
The England star will return from a groin injury and feature in a backline that will also include Ryan Lamb, Mark Foster and Freddie Burns.
Gloucester have already recorded two victories from their opening two games and another against the Tigers would be a considerable achievement.
There are also places for Henry Trinder and Charlie Sharples, while coach Mark Cornwell includes hooker Scott Lawson, Apo Satala and Dan Williams in his forward pack.
The game is included in the season ticket package and all other tickets cost £5 for adults and £1 for children. Gates will open at 6pm and supporters are advised Gate Two (next to the club shop) will be the only way into the ground.
There will be un-reserved seating in the C&G Grandstand and the Shed will also be open.
Speaking to the local media this week, back row flanker Jacob Rowan said that he is excited for the challenge at the Ricoh Arena this Sunday, and added that the players know the responsibility is theirs to deliver against the league leaders.
Ben Morgan was on media duty this week, and as Gloucester prepare for Sunday's trip to Wasps, the number eight is looking forward to see Gloucester go toe-to-toe with another of the Aviva Premiership's front runners.
Tom Marshall scored his first Gloucester try in the 31-23 win over Saracens on Friday evening and was named Man of the Match. Talking to GRTV, he praised the forwards for setting the tone on the night.
Matt Scott was on media duty this week, and the Scottish international spoke about the benefit of having a full week of training with his club mates and the determination to get back to performing well against Saracens this Friday evening.
After the disappointment of last weekend's performance at Leicester, Director of Rugby David Humphreys told GRTV that he expects a big response from Gloucester in Friday's Aviva Premiership fixture at home to Saracens (kick off 7:45pm).
Gloucester battled bravely against Wasps on Sunday, but it was a case of taking chances at the Ricoh Arena. Gloucester didn't make the most of theirs while Wasps did, and that proved to be the difference.
Gloucester were competitive for long periods at the Ricoh Arena on Sunday afternoon, but were left to rue a host of missed scoring opportunities throughout as Wasps hit back to earn a 35-22 Aviva Premiership win.
Gloucester's Ciaran Knight made his first start at tighthead prop, Henry Walker made his first appearance as a second half replacement and Alex Seville also featured as England U20s might it three from three in the U20s Six Nations with a 46-0 win over Italy in Darlington on Friday night.
