ULSTER have made two changes for their second Pool Four Heineken Cup match at Scotstoun on Friday night against Glasgow Warriors.
South African international Ruan Pienaar comes in to scrumhalf to make his first start for the Province this season.
He replaces Paul Marshall, who moves to the bench, in spite of scoring two tries and being the Heineken man of the match last week in the 41-17 win over French side, Castres.
Pienaar came off the bench in that game at Ravenhill to score a last gasp try - but it was the crucial fourth try which secured a bonus point which leaves Ulster top of the table on points difference from Northampton Saints who are in Castres on Friday night.
The other change, as predicted by the News Letter on Thursday morning, sees Nick Williams making a return from injury to start at No 8. Mike McComish moves to bench, with Ulster head coach, Mark Anscombe sticking with Chris Henry and Iain Henderson in the backrow.
Stephen Ferris has still not fully recovered from a back problem.
Ulster are favourites going into Friday night’s game against the Scottish side who cannot afford to lose or their European Cup hopes will realistically be over for this season.
