The Aviva Premiership returns on Friday following Six Nations action and lowly Worcester Warriors go in search of their first league success when Wasps visit Sixways Stadium.
Dean Ryan's men have endured a league season to forget with 16 straight defeats while mid-table Wasps have 30 more points than their rivals.
Worcester can take heart from the fact they won this fixture 29-23 last season and they need to start winning sooner rather than later if they are to stand a chance of staying up.
Scotland prop Euan Murray returns from Six Nations duty to pack down against Wasps.
Wing Josh Drauniniu is back instead of an injured Dean Hammond, while the rest of the team is unchanged following a one-point defeat against Harlequins in Warriors' last league game.
"We know we stare at relegation if we can't win at Newcastle and winning against Wasps is the key to being successful at Kingston Park," Ryan told Worcester's official website.
"Relegation has sat heavy over the club since losing to London Irish and Newcastle at home early in the season. The stakes are that high. Ryan Lamb coming in has given a bit of direction and a bit of freshness to the squad."
England lock Joe Launchbury is straight back into Premiership action with Wasps following the Six Nations.
Prop Matt Mullan, who was on bench duty for England in Rome last weekend, also starts, and Italy back Andrea Masi features in midfield.
Wasps captain Chris Bell said: "Worcester are not a bad side and they have been playing very well recently so we know that we will be up against a good side, as we are every week in the Aviva Premiership.
"If we don't turn up and play as well as we can do we will be in for a very tough night at Sixways."
