Jonny May says Gloucester are intent on rescuing a disappointing season by capturing the Amlin Challenge Cup.

The Cherry and Whites travel to Aviva Premiership rivals Wasps for Sunday's quarter-final tie, where victory would set up a last-four clash with either West Country rivals Bath or Brive.

"Winning trophies is what our fans expect of us and it's what we expect of ourselves as well," said May, who has been named on the wing for Sunday's contest at Adams Park.

"Things haven't been great this season but we've shown at times what we can do and, if we can put it all together, we can get some positive results in the Amlin and have something to cheer about."

Gloucester face Wasps again in the Aviva Premiership St George's Day clash at Twickenham on April 19, and with the top-six finishers qualifying automatically for next season's top-tier European tournament, both sides could be forgiven for attaching greater importance to that game.

However, May has rejected any such notion.

"It's a real opportunity for Gloucester to have something to be proud of this season," said the 24-year-old.

"It's a breath of fresh air and it's definitely an opportunity for us to go out there and enjoy ourselves.

"We're in a quarter-final and if we win three games we'll have something to be really proud of. We're looking forward to it."
