Wasps will be looking to climb into the top half of the Aviva Premiership standings when they welcome London Irish to Adams Park on Saturday.
Wasps head into the meeting on the back of a dramatic late defeat against neighbours Harlequins last weekend.
The Exiles, on the other hand, sealed an impressive victory away to Saracens and they will be determined to leapfrog ninth-placed Gloucester with another win on the road.
Wasps boss Dai Young has named an unchanged team and there are just three changes on the bench, where Nathan Hughes and Charlie Davies return from injury to grab replacement spots, along with Esteban Lozada.
"London Irish will come to Adams Park on the back of a great victory at Allianz Park, while we suffered a tough one-point loss in our last outing," Young said.
"We have to bounce back on Saturday and everything in training this week has been focused on improving on last week's performance."
One Irish change
Meanwhile, Ian Humphreys replaces Fergus Mulchrone in the only London Irish change after the full-back sustained a calf injury in the win over Sarries.
Matt Parr, David Paice and Jamie Hagan make up the front-row with George Skivington again partnering Nic Rouse in the second-row.
Kieran Low and Blair Cowan will play alongside Ofisa Treviranus, who signed a new contract with the club this week, in the back-row.
Tomas O'Leary and Ian Humphreys will start at half-back with Shane Geraghty and Eamonn Sheridan in the centre.
Andrew Fenby, Alex Lewington and James O'Connor make up the back-three.
"I was very pleased with the application and courage the squad showed last weekend at Saracens," said Irish boss Brian Smith.
"We have prepared well this week and want to take this into our match. Wasps played well last weekend and will be looking to make amends against us, so we need to be ready for the challenge."
