Nigel Davies says the return of the Heineken Cup is a welcome relief for his out-of-form Gloucester side.

The Cherry and Whites have lost five successive Aviva Premiership outings and sit third from bottom in the table.

Gloucester are also at the foot of Pool 6 but director of rugby Davies knows that victory in Edinburgh on Sunday will put them back in contention.

"We'll have to freshen things up and we'll have to have a different outlook going into those two fixtures," said Davies.

"Edinburgh are a side I know well from my PRO12 time and they want to play a bit of rugby as well. They will be two interesting encounters."

"Edinburgh are a side I know well from my PRO12 time and they want to play a bit of rugby as well. They will be two interesting encounters.

No wholesale changes

"We won't be making wholesale changes because we have to build. We have to get some wins under out belt so we can come back into the Premiership in good shape."

Despite their poor run of form, Davies remains confident that Gloucester can produce back-to-back performances against Edinburgh.

"We're a good team but rugby is a basic game - we have got to get our sets better and we have got to take our points," he added.

"Fundamentally there are a couple of areas that we just have to get right.

"I think Winston Churchill famously said 'when you're going through hell, keep going'. That's what we have got to do."
