Head Coach Richard Hill has named a new-look pack as Worcester Warriors make the trip south to face Exeter Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership at Sandy Park on Saturday .
Hill has made a total of five changes to the team that defeated Sale Sharks 23-16 in the league on home soil last Friday night.
Hooker Ed Shervington and prop Ceri Jones are both handed their first start of the league campaign in the front row.
Dean Schofield returns to captain the team in the second row while Chris Jones is also called up to play at Number Eight after impressing off the bench against his former club last week.
One change in the back division sees a welcome return to dynamic wing Josh Drauniniu, who will face his former club alongside Josh Matavesi who also makes a first return to Exeter this weekend.
Matt Mullan is named among the replacements after spending time in the England training camp this week.
Head Coach Richard Hill said: "It's a fantastic opportunity for us to climb the table at Exeter. They're one point ahead of us in the league but it will be a very tough match. I'm a big admirer of what they have achieved and the club."
"In their last two Aviva Premiership home games they've beaten Harlequins and Saracens so they're not very easy to beat at Sandy Park. We know how tough a game it will be for us.
"They've lost their last three games in all competitions though so one or two doubts might start to creep in their heads. They'll be thinking they've got to beat us and they'll have a bit of pressure on them so we've got to try and capitalise on any uncertainty."
Exeter Chiefs have suffered three successive defeats in all competitions. The Chiefs are the only side who remain with a 100% home winning record in Aviva Premiership Rugby this season.
Worcester Warriors have won their last three games in all competitions.
The Warriors have won just once on the road in the Premiership since April 2009: 6-0 at London Wasps on New Year's Day 2012.
Exeter have taken both previous Premiership encounters between the two clubs, whilst Worcester's last win over Exeter was 25-14 at the County Ground in National One on 20 March 2004.
Exeter winger Sireli Naqelevuki was included in the Fijian squad for the Autumn Internationals earlier this week but returns this week to the Chiefs starting line-up in place of the injured Jason Shoemark. Naqelevuki is one of four fresh faces head coach Rob Baxter has made to the side that took to the field at Bath.
The other changes see Chris Whitehead return at hooker in place of Simon Alcott; whilst skipper Tom Hayes and Aly Muldowney form a new pairing in the second row; with Dean Mumm reverting to the blindside flank as Tom Johnson is away on international duty.
And it's up front where Exeter Chiefs assistant coach Ali Hepher expects the battle to be at its most confrontational as he warned: "Worcester are always very strong up front, but this year they've really added to their attacking game as well; and they have quality at half-back."
"They are a strong outfit who can cause you real problems if you let them."
