Western Force head coach Michael Foley has made no changes to his starting line-up that will take on the Sharks at Kings Park on Saturday.

The only alteration comes on the bench where full-back Dane Haylett-Petty is set to make his return from a foot injury should he come on to the field.

Otherwise it's the same squad that was beaten, 25-24, by the Bulls last week.

Haylett-Petty suffered a foot injury in the Western Force's Week One 25-13 win over the Waratahs, but has recovered to reclaim his place in the matchday 23.

Western Force: 15 Luke Morahan, 14 Marcel Brache, 13 Kyle Godwin, 12 Luke Burton, 11 Nick Cummins, 10 Sias Ebersohn, 9 Alby Mathewson, 8 Ben McCalman, 7 Kane Koteka, 6 Steve Mafi, 5 Adam Coleman, 4 Sam Wykes (c), 3 Tetera Faulkner, 2 Nathan Charles, 1 Pekahou Cowan.
Replacements: 16 Heath Tessmann, 17 Chris Heiberg, 18 Oliver Hoskins, 19 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 20 Angus Cottrell, 21 Ian Prior, 22 Zack Holmes, 23 Dane Haylett-Petty.
