Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Davies has demanded a response from his team when they face Saracens on Sunday at Allianz Park.
The Cherry and Whites picked up a surprising loss to Sale Sharks at home on the opening weekend of the new Aviva Premiership season.
Gloucester trailed 19-3 before staging a late comeback in front of their home fans, but Joe Ford's drop goal sealed the win for Sale and left Gloucester open to heavy criticism from fans and pundits.
Now with the tricky proposition of a visit to Saracens on Sunday, Davies believes that the match will be more about the physical confrontation rather than tactics, but cited it as the perfect challenge to bounce back from last weekend's loss.
"We have made one or two changes. But, in the main, it's up to the guys to redeem themselves, really," said Davies.
"There is some technical stuff that we have to get right in terms of the set-piece. And, when we get more ball, we can actually dictate for longer periods of the game.
"It may not be a huge tactical game on Sunday.
"It may well come down to whoever wants it the most. It's the sort of thing that Saracens pride themselves on, in terms of dominating the opposition and being more physical.
"It is a great challenge, it's exactly what we want. Probably the best fixture we could have had."
