Glasgow head coach Sean Lineen has kept faith with the side that lost 23-16 to Leinster last Sunday for their Heineken Cup clash with Bath.

The only changes to the 23 for Saturday's Round Six fixture at the Rec come on the bench, where Ryan Wilson, Peter Murchie and Henry Pyrgos replace Johnnie Beattie (elbow), Troy Nathan (back) and Colin Gregor respectively.

Gregor, a contracted Scotland Sevens player, has returned to the Sevens squad to continue preparations for the forthcoming Wellington and Las Vegas legs of the HSBC World Series.

Lineen told the Glasgow website: "With the intensity and physicality of modern professional rugby, especially the Heineken Cup, it's quite unusual to send out exactly the same XV two weeks in a row.

"But this group made clear what they can do last weekend and they deserve the opportunity to help us go that one step further on Saturday.

"As our record in England shows, it takes something really special to win on a Premiership ground.

"The challenge is to do something we've never done before, and we need everyone to rise to that."
