Your News Team news for Bristol v Nottingham

Liam Middleton names a virtually unchanged side from the 17-15 victory at Goldington Road, as Bristol Rugby welcome Nottingham to the Memorial Stadium on Friday evening (7.45pm KO).

The Head Coach makes just one change to the starting line-up, with Louis Silver earning his first competitive start for the Club at scrum-half.

Ben Mosses and Rhys Lawrence retain their places after impressive displays last weekend, while Ross Johnston passes a fitness test to be named among the replacements.

Jack Tovey and George Watkins, who top the Clubs scoring charts with four tries apiece, are included in a youthful backline. Junior Fatialofa (hamstring) and Mark Davies (back) miss out after failing to recover from injuries that kept them out of the win over Bedford.

Middleton opts for a five forwards and two backs split on the replacements bench. Darren Crompton will make his 200th league appearance if he features against the Green and Whites.

Bristol Rugby team to face Nottingham at the Memorial Stadium on Friday 7 October (7.45 pm KO):

Sean Marsden; George Watkins, Jack Tovey, Ben Mosses, Matt Williams; Tristan Roberts, Louis Silver; Mark Irish, Rhys Lawrence, Jason Hobson, Mariano Sambucetti, Roy Winters, Josh Ovens, James Merriman, Iain Grieve (c).

Replacements: Ross Johnston, Darren Crompton, Wayne Thompson, Dan Montagu, Marco Mama, Tom Slater, Jon Goodridge.
