Just one point and one place separate Cov and the Pirates in the Greene King IPA Championship table.

The Pirates rightly received all the plaudits for their Round 1 win over Saracens, the first of three on the trot to open the campaign. The form has been somewhat patchier since then, with losses to Doncaster, Ealing and Ampthill, sandwiching a win away to Nottingham.

Cov come into the game on the back of a three-match winning streak which has been the springboard up to fifth in the table. The 15 points represents the best haul for the club from three matches in the Championship era, and there has been just the one game this season in which Cov has not earned at least one league point.
