Glasgow coach Sean Lineen has urged his players to make home advantage count when they host French side Biarritz in the Heineken Cup on Saturday.
The Warriors boss has made just one change from the side who defeated Cardiff Blues 21-5 last weekend.
Chris Cusiter replaces Colin Gregor at scrum-half having recovered sufficiently from the flu bug that has affected the majority of the squad over the past few weeks.
Lineen said: “This is the first time during my time here that we’ve had a home start and we need to make it count.
“When in such an intense European competition the crowd can make a huge difference.
“This is Europe. We need to start well instead of making a cameo appearance later in the competition.
“The players have shown a fantastic work ethic for each other over the past two weeks and showed great character to win against a Cardiff side last weekend with five British Lions in it.
“The Biarritz team will contain some world-class players but there are now a number of Glasgow players hitting great form and this should be a good indicator of where they are, especially as most of them will be targeting a place in the Scotland squad ahead of November’s Bank of Scotland Corporate Autumn Tests.”
