Fifth-placed Scarlets welcome table-toppers Glasgow Warriors on Friday as the race for a play-off spot hots up.

The hosts have made just two personnel changes to their matchday 23 from the side which beat the Dragons in the derby double header at the Millennium Stadium last time out.

Wing Andy Fenby comes back into the starting line-up and scrum-half Gareth Davies comes onto the bench.

Liam Williams moves from wing to full-back for Gareth Owen (illness) and Ken Owens starts at hooker with Matthew Rees on the bench.

For Glasgow, Scotland U20 centre Mark Bennett has been handed only his third start since re-joining the Warriors in November.

The 20-year-old has scored two tries in three appearances for the Warriors this season and came off the bench to score against Munster last week, with his other try coming in the 60-3 victory over the Dragons at Rodney Parade in February.

The other changes to the starting XV that beat Munster 51-24 at Scotstoun last Friday sees Henry Pyrgos replacing Niko Matawalu at scrum-half, Tom Ryder coming into the second-row in place of Tim Swinson and props Moray Low and Gordon Reid replacing Jon Welsh and Ryan Grant.

Sean Lamont, Matawalu, Swinson and Grant drop to the bench, while Welsh is not included in the 23-man squad.

Scarlets: 15 Liam Williams, 14 George North, 13 Jonathan Davies, 12 Scott Williams, 11 Andy Fenby, 10 Owen Williams, 9 Aled Davies, 8 Rob McCusker (c), 7 Johnathan Edwards, 6 Aaron Shingler, 5 Johan Synman, 4 George Earle, 3 Samson Lee, 2 Ken Owens, 1 Phil John.
Replacements: 16 Matthew Rees, 17 Rhodri Jones, 18 Deacon Manu, 19 Sione Timani, 20 Josh Turnbull, 21 Gareth Davies, 22 Aled Thomas, 23 Gareth Maule.

Glasgow Warriors: 15 Stuart Hogg, 14 Sean Maitland, 13 Mark Bennett, 12 Peter Horne, 11 DTH van der Merwe, 10 Ruaridh Jackson, 9 Henry Pyrgos, 8 Ryan Wilson, 7 John Barclay, 6 Josh Strauss, 5 Al Kellock (c), 4 Tom Ryder, 3 Moray Low, 2 Pat MacArthur, 1 Gordon Reid.
Replacements: 16 Dougie Hall, 17 Ryan Grant, 18 Ed Kalman, 19 Tim Swinson, 20 Rob Harley, 21 Niko Matawalu, 22 Duncan Weir, 23 Sean Lamont.

What they said...

Scarlets coach Simon Easterby

"This is going to be a very big test for us and it's a high pressure game for us all but one we look forward to. They showed against Munster in particular how effective they can be; it's been positive that we've had some added time to study them, with the break for European games and really look at areas we want to attack in their game."

Glasgow coach Gregor Townsend

"Training has been really good this week and we had a very competitive day on Monday. Everyone has come back fresh from a week off, so we're looking for that to benefit us during the run-in. The skill level and commitment of the players has been excellent all season and we'll need another big performance tomorrow night. We played well in the second half against Munster and it was a fantastic result for the club, but our focus is now very much on Scarlets and we're expecting an extremely tough game."
