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.

Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
In case you missed it, there was plenty of activity on the official Gloucester Rugby website following the 55-0 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over CA Brive, including a number of post match video interviews.
The Cherry and Whites ran in seven tries in beating CA Brive 55-0 on Thursday night. An emphatic second half performance saw the hosts run in five tries to get the European campaign off to a flying start.
