The Warriors head for the meeting having rediscovered their winning formula in their last home game against Sale Sharks and will undoubtedly targeting the match as a must win as they look to put distance between themselves and twelfth placed London Irish.

The Falcons head into the match on a fine run of form at Kingston Park and will be equally determined to extend their home strike rate to seven wins from seven matches in all competitions.

Should they achieve that feat, Dean Richards side will take a further step towards closing down ninth placed Bath Rugby and a congested Aviva Premiership midfield.
