Gloucester welcome back Phil Vickery to the side to face Worcester in the 13,000 sell-out Zurich Premiership derby at Kingsholm on Saturday (Sat 29 Jan, Kick off 3pm).
The 28 year-old tight-head missed last weekend's cup win over Bristol through flu, and will join Terry Sigley and Welsh international hooker Mefin Davies in the front row.
Tongan wing Seti Kiole continues on the left wing in place of James Simpson-Daniel, who misses out (shoulder).
The second-row also sees a change with Peter Buxton coming in for Adam Eustace, who hasn't trained all week due to flu.
Commenting on www.gloucesterrugbyclub.com Andy Gomarsall, who continues his half-back partnership with Duncan McRae, was in determined mood ahead of Gloucester's fourth successive 13,000 capacity crowd since the start of January.
"The result against Stade Francais two weeks ago has to be a turning point. Not should be, it has to be, there's no doubt about that.
"We learnt a lot from that. We've got to build on the result against Bristol last weekend, and ensure we get up the Premiership table."
Gloucester beat Worcester 18-13 in the first Premiership meeting between the two sides back in October, and 30 year-old Gomarsall knows it'll be another big game for the Kingsholm club.
"We had a few problems early on against Worcester up at Sixways, and the start will be key to us on Saturday.
"Worcester will be a tough nut to crack, as they've got a good set of experienced players up front."
Gomarsall's half-back partner Duncan McRae hasn't played in the Premiership since the away win at Sixways in October after neck and knee injuries, but returned to first team action in the Heineken Cup two weekends ago.
The 30 year-old Aussie was quick to point out that Gloucester need to start moving up the league if they're to hit that top three slot.
"To be brutally honest, it was just good to get back to winning ways last weekend. Everyone knows Worcester have impressed this season. They put us under a lot of pressure at Sixways, and they've had some good results so far. We've got to look at climbing the ladder in the Zurich now."
The former South Wales Waratahs stand-off has been feeding off the superb support from the city of Gloucester and the fans ever since his arrival 16 months ago.
"Every player wants to play in front of a packed stadium, and it's a privilege to do that week-in-week-out at Kingsholm. Everyone has been superb, and in fairness, some of our recent results haven't deserved the support that we've actually had."
James Simpson-Daniel went through a series of strength tests on his shoulder this week and it was decided that the winger should sit-out Saturday's game, with his likely return being against NEC Harlequins next weekend.
