It is now four games since Gloucs won and we will have to work hard to stop the rot when second place Sale visit on Friday night.
There's a number of changes to the side which went down 24-20 at Irish with Tom Marshall at full-back while Tom Seabrook comes in on the wing for the poorly Louis Rees-Zammit.
The Six Nations continues to affect selection, of course, with Willi Heinz still with England. Howecer, Callum Braley is free from duties with Italy and starts in the 9 shirt while Jake Polledri is also back from Italy duty.
Hooker Franco Marais has recovered from injury and Ben Morgan is back at number eight.
Gloucs: 15 Tom Marshall; 14. Tom Seabrook, 13. Billy Twelvetrees, 12. Mark Atkinson, 11. Ollie Thorley; 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Callum Braley; 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. Franco Marais, 3. Fraser Balmain; 4. Ed Slater, 5. Franco Mostert (captain); 6. Ruan Ackermann, 7. Jake Polledri, 8. Ben Morgan.
Reps: Todd Gleave, Val Rapava Ruskin, Ciaran Knight, Alex Craig, Lewis Ludlow, Charlie Chapman, Lloyd Evans. . Matt Banahan
Sale have front-row Will Griff-John returning from Wales and Ben Curry released by England.
Very appropriately the game will be dedicated to shine a light on Mental Health, to raise awareness and promote kindness through the #BeKind campaign.
