Bath Rugby have delayed naming the team to face Gloucester in the SOLD OUT semi-final of the Powergen Cup until Sunday.
Jonathan Humphreys is likely to start from the bench following his recovery from a troublesome heel injury.
Steve Borthwick will captain the side from second row, and is one of five England internationals who return to the squad after playing against Ireland last weekend. Olly Barkley, Matt Stevens, Danny Grewcock and Duncan Bell are all also named in the 25-man squad.
In the backs Matt Perry returns to the squad after missing the NEC Harlequins game with a stiff back, whilst Tom Cheeseman returns following Wales international duty.
Brendon Daniel (back), Lee Best (groin), Robbie Fleck (calf), Mike Tindall (foot), Spencer Davey (knee), Frikkie Welsh (thigh) are all out through injury.
Loose-head prop David Flatman misses out, as the England international requires a couple more weeks to be ready for a full competitive return. However, David Barnes returns to the squad after being passed fit to play following his recovery from a broken forearm.
"This is a pretty big game for both sides," said head coach John Connolly. "The Powergen Cup represents a route into next season's Heineken Cup."
"We are confident heading into the game and I don't think that the result two weeks ago is a factor. We failed to take our chances in that game and there will be a number of other variables on Sunday like a change in personnel, change in referee and change in conditions. It will be an extremely tough game."
Bath Rugby squad:
Matt Perry, Joe Maddock, Nick Abendanon, Steve Booth, Ryan Davis, Andrew Higgins, Olly Barkley, Tom Cheeseman, Andy Williams, Chris Malone, Nick Walshe, Martyn Wood, Heinrich Kok, Matt Stevens, Duncan Bell, David Barnes, Lee Mears, Jonathan Humphreys, Steve Borthwick, Danny Grewcock, Rob Fidler, Geraint Lewis, Gareth Delve, James Scaysbrook, Zak Feaunati
