Duncan McRae will make his return to the Gloucester shirt on Monday evening in the Club's final Zurich 'A' League game of the season against Saracens (Mon 4 April, kick off 7.30pm).
The Aussie stand-off is set to line-up alongside James Simpson-Daniel, Andy Gomarsall, James Bailey, Mark Foster, Simon Amor and Olly Morgan in an exciting backs division for the clash with Saracens at Kingsholm.
The reserve team clash against the London side comes on the Monday before Gloucester take on Leeds Tykes in the Premiership at Kingsholm on Saturday (9 April, kick off 3pm).
Gloucester name a powerful front row against the Saracens second team, with Christo Bezuidenhout, Rob Elloway and Terry Sigley all starting.
Former England U21 captain Jonathan Pendlebury lines up in the second row alongside Dan Touhey, who is on trial from Weston Super Mare.
Luke Narraway, who has been pushing for a first team place in recent weeks, is at number eight with England Academy player Will Matthews and St Peter's School pupil Will Jones on the flanks.
Looking ahead to his return, Duncan McRae said: "It's been one of the most frustrating seasons of my career. We started the year getting better week by week, and then the injuries hit."
Gloucester's win away at London Irish last weekend took them to within five points of Sale Sharks in third place.
"Whatever has happened in the last few months, it now comes down to the final three games. We're only five points away from third position, and there are a number of clubs in the mix, which makes for an interesting few weeks."
McRae has missed a number of months this season through neck and knee injuries, and is determined to get back to be part of Gloucester's push for a top three slot.
"It'll be good to get back out there on Monday night, and we're looking forward to some good support, as it's the last Zurich 'A' League game of the season."
Phil Vickery sees a specialist about his broken arm on Monday and could be given the go ahead to be in contention for the clash with Leeds on Saturday 9 April.
