Tony Windo will make his first Guinness Premiership start of the season against former club Gloucester in a Warriors side that features five changes from the team that started the last top-flight clash against Leicester Tigers.
Prop Windo starts in the front row for the game at Kingsholm after recovering from back and shoulder problems.
Matt Powell returns at scrum half after missing the Tigers test because of suspension and Tom Harding comes in for the injured Drew Hickey at openside, with captain Pat Sanderson switching to blindside.
South African Thinus Delport starts on the wing, after Marcel Garvey was ruled out with a fractured eye socket, and Lee Best replaces the ruled out Shane Drahm at full back.
Phil Murphy returns on the replacements bench and is joined by Simon Whatling and Gavin Quinnell.
