Saracens head coach Steve Diamond has named his side for Saturday's Zurich Premiership clash at Gloucester.
With a minimum of a fifth place finish assured, the Men In Black travel to a SOLD OUT Kingsholm with a number of permutations still possible in the shake-up for European and end of season play-off places.
Diamond said: "There are a number of different equations that are still possible going into the game, but all we can do is work hard at Gloucester, try to get the win and then see what happens with all the other results.
"What we want to do is try and keep our momentum going, but we know Gloucester have a very good side and they don't lose many games at Kingsholm so we will have to be at our best."
Diamond welcomes back Taine Randell and Cobus Visagie into the starting line-up with Glen Jackson returning on the bench. Ben Skirving and Richard Haughton are included in the eight replacements named which will be finalised on Saturday morning.
However, David Seymour has been ruled out after picking up an ankle injury in the game against Leicester and Ben Russell has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering an abdominal injury in training.
