Gavin Henson is set to make his debut this Sunday (3pm kick-off) as Bristol take on Moseley at Ashton Gate in the Greene King IPA Championship.

Moseley will aim to build on a narrow win over Cornish Pirates when they visit Ashton Gate on Sunday (3pm KO).

The Billesley Common outfit - coached by former Bristol duo Kevin Maggs and Dave Hilton - beat Pirates 22-18 last weekend.

Moseley suffered a 59-14 defeat in the clash between the sides back in October, as Ross Johnston bagged a brace, while Matthew Morgan, David Lemi, Ryan Edwards, Ben Mosses, Max Crumpton and Auguy Slowik also touched down.

A narrow 15-23 reversal to Bedford Blues was followed by a one-point 19-18 defeat to resurgent Plymouth Albion.

A fifty point thumping by top-of-the-table Worcester Warriors followed, before going down 32-17 to Yorkshire Carnegie at Headingley.

But Moseley have been boosted by the return of Ben Williams and Buster Lawrence on loan from Dragons and Wasps respectively.

Following Sunday's game, Moseley travel to the Richmond Athletic Ground to face London Scottish on Saturday, 21 February (3pm kick-off).
