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.

Speaking after the game, Charlie Sharples described it as 'the win that has eluded us.' The winger stressed that Gloucester had stayed positive after the first couple of weeks of the Aviva Premiership season and the 26-13 victory over Sale was a result of that focus.
Gloucester Rugby picked up their first win of the new Aviva Premiership season on Friday night, easing to a 26-13 win on the road at Sale Sharks. Director of Rugby David Humphreys was full of praise for his players on the night.
Defence Coach Jonny Bell was on media duties ahead of the Aviva Premiership fixture at Sale Sharks on Friday evening, and spoke about where Gloucester find themselves in terms of their form at the moment as well as how he's viewing their defensive displays so far.
Callum Braley, who skippered Gloucester United to a 22-19 Aviva Premiership A League win over Saracens Storm on Monday evening, paid tribute to his forwards and the younger players in what he described as not the prettiest of wins.
Tickets for Saturday's Aviva Premiership game against Bath Rugby in both the Stowford Press Terrace and also The Shed are now in short supply, although a number of returns from the visitors have just gone back on sale.
A desperately disappointing afternoon for Gloucester who, despite dominating possession and territory, were guilty of failing to make the most of it against a resolute Newcastle defence before the visitors pounced to snatch the win in the second half.
