BRETT Davey has kept the faith with the backs that ended the Knights’ winless run as he prepares to face fellow strugglers Moseley on Friday night (7.45pm).

Winger Dan Smith is the only back from the win at Nottingham to miss out as he knee injury will keep him out.

Speedster Tyson Lewis will come into the side for Smith.

Davey’s only other changes will come in the front row with Tom Davies and new signing Keiran Brookes coming into the side.

Davies is back at full fitness and replaces impressive debutant Jack Bergmanas while Brookes has been handed his debut at the expense of Adam Tamanis, who also performed well at Nottingham.

The Knights will be keen to carry the momentum from the win in the British and Irish Cup into the vital Championship clash.

Birmingham side Moseley won their games against Llanelli and London Scottish during the B&I Cup break, taking them to a run of three wins in four games after the surprise win at Bristol.

Moseley have made just two changes to the starting XV that beat London Scottish last weekend.

Sam Carter will replace Adam Caves at hooker while Addison Lockley will start in the second row in place of Liam Mather.
