Gregor Townsend has demanded his Glasgow side to bounce back from last weekend's Scarlets defeat when they host Ospreys on Friday.

The Warriors were knocked off the top of the RaboDirect Pro 12 table following a 29-6 defeat and now sit third - four points behind leaders Ulster and five ahead of Scarlets.

Glasgow head coach Townsend said: "It's a huge game for the club, even more so after our defeat to the Scarlets last week. We expect a reaction from our players tomorrow night.

"There have been a lot of memorable moments at Scotstoun this season and this has the potential to be another great game.

"We're really respectful of our opponents, they take a combative approach to every game, they challenge at the breakdown, have an excellent set piece and are ranked as the best defensive team in the competition.

"It's a wonderful challenge for our players - going up against a top quality side in front of their home support."

He added said: "A number of players have been given the opportunity to represent the club in such an important fixture and it's worth highlighting the inclusion of Graeme Morrison, who has been a tremendous servant for the club over the past 10 years.

"He has had injury issues this season, but he's been training really well in recent weeks and we're delighted to have him back in the team.

"It's great for Graeme to line up alongside his good friend John Barclay, who we know will be playing what could be his final home game for the club on his 150th appearance, which is a tremendous achievement."
