Bristol have never won at Billesley Common

 

Bristol Rugby will be desperate to end a barren run in the West Midlands when Liam Middleton’s side face Moseley on Friday (7.45pm KO).

The Club have never won at Billesley Common in the RFU Championship, with a record of two defeats and a draw.

On the final day of the 2009/10 regular campaign, Paul Hull’s side went down 30-25 to the hosts, although current centre Luke Eves grabbed a consolation try.

In September 2010, Bristol drew 13-13 at Billesley Common, before going down 33-27 last season, during Middleton’s first year at the helm.

Bristol will look to atone for a 22-21 shock defeat to Kevin Maggs’ side in September. The hosts were sunk by a last-ditch penalty goal as Moseley fought back from a 21-5 deficit to steal victory at the Memorial Stadium.

After Friday’s game, Moseley welcome Leeds (March 23), before hosting London Scottish (March 30).
