Albion Team News
PLYMOUTH Albion will be hoping to make it two wins in a row in the Championship play-offs when they entertain London Scottish.
Albion boosted their hopes of staying in the Championship with a 18-11 win over Esher at Brickfields last Friday.
Head coach Nat Saumi is keen for his team to build on that victory, which ended a run of five losses for Albion.
Saumi is able to name the same starting XV for tomorrow's game against a Scottish side who have won their opening two play-off matches.
However, there are changes on Albion bench, with Luke Cowan-Dickie returning from England Under-20 duty and Steve Johns and Davy McGregor coming back into the squad.
Johns was Albion's hero when Albion last hosted Scottish at Brickfields. He scored a last-gasp try to help his side to a 29-25 win.
Both regular league matches between the two sides were close with Scottish winning 21-17 on their home patch.
Admission tomorrow starts at £14 for adults with under-16s getting into the ground free if accompanied by an adult.
London Scottish travel to Plymouth Albion aiming to make it three wins from three and take a huge leap towards securing survival in the RFU Championship.
The 23-20 win over Moseley confirmed Scottish at the top of the Relegation Pool, and go into the double header with Plymouth full of confidence. The sharp turn around from Sunday’s game going into the Friday night fixture has seen changes in the squad in both the backs and the pack.
Double try scorer against Moseley Gerard Mullen retains his place with Agustin Gosio and Stuart Peel in the back three and the centre partnership of Westren and Hayter continue. Half backs James Brown and Matt Heeks come in for Dan Mugford and Simon Amor.
In the pack, three changes see Ben Lonergan, Steve Pape and Matthew Johnson step up into the starting XV.
London Scottish face Plymouth Albion in the return fixture nine days later at the Athletic Ground, Sunday 1st April, 2pm kick off.
