After the loss at the hands of the Exiles last Sunday, Brown admitted that it will be good to be be running out in front of the loyal Gloucester support this weekend:
"We're back at home and home is where we love playing, in front of the Shed, and we're really looking forward to it."
"We do need the fans to get behind us. During the Bath game they were absolutely fantastic and more of the same would be fantastic. It does make a difference."
"At the same time, we have to play our part and give them something to cheer about whether that's putting in the big hits or making line breaks or ball carries. If we do that, they'll be right behind us."
On a personal note, Brown could well be facing Ignacio Fernandez Lobbe and Juandre Kruger in the lineout and feels that the South African, in particular, will be a tough opponent.
"I played against him last year and rated him very highly actually. He arrived late last year and has obviously come up through the South African system but has settled at Northampton really well."
"They've got a good pack and we'll have to be at our best to prevent them getting too much ball because they have some talented backs who can use it well."
Getting back to winning ways is obviously important to the team and the defeat at Irish a disappointment but Brown insists that morale is still good.
"Second game in and we were disappointed with the loss but it is very early days and we're not going to beat ourselves up too much about it."
"We've got a long old season ahead of us and there will be ups and down. We are back at Kingsholm on Saturday which is always good for us and hopefully we'll get back to winning ways."
