The Cornish Pirates' director of rugby says they have got to put a performance in against Nottingham.

Our guys clinched a draw the last time the sides met.

But we have suffered two defeats on the bounce.

Ian Davies says onwards and upwards: "The competition is really tough. Every week if you're not on your game you don't get a lot of chances to win. We've played two of the favourites for promotion but Nottingham this weekend is not going to get any easier. In the Championship there are no easy games.

"This weekend they've got to come to us. Our focus is the next three games. We were disappointed after last weekend so we've got to put a performance in.

"We will take nothing for granted as Nottingham are expected to give us a really tough game. Keeping discipline is important as they have a good kicker, and their set piece has also won them games.

"We have looked at what went wrong for us against London Welsh and are keen to put things right. It should be an entertaining encounter."

The Cornish Pirates selection is as follows:

Cornish Pirates:   15 Max Bodilly, 14 Kyle Moyle, 13 Tom Riley, 12 Junior Fatialofa, 11 Craig Holland, 10 Kieran Hallett,  9 Tom Kessell; 1 Shane Cahill, 2 Rob Elloway, 3 Jack Andrew, 4 Will Carrick Smith, 5 Will Graulich, 6 Chris Morgan (capt), 7 Alex Cheesman, 8 Tom Duncan.

Replacements:   16 Tom Channon, 17 Kieran Davies, 18 Darren Barry, 19 Aaron Carpenter, 20   Angus Sinclair, 21 Rheon James, 22 Tom Hendrickson.

Referee:   Craig Maxwell-Keys (RFU)

Assistants:   Phil Watters & Clare Daniel      Reserve Official:   Darren Curry
