Matt Shields, Neale Patrick, Chevvy Pennycook and Drew Locke all return to the London Scottish starting line-up for their match against Jersey at the Athletic Ground on Saturday afternoon. 

The Scots are looking for their first win since the victory over London Welsh in early October after a tough run of games. Four of their last five matches have been settled by four points or fewer.
 
Shields joins James Hallam and Adam Kwasnicki in the front-row, with Josh Thomas Brown and Neale Patrick in the second-row. 
 
Pennycook returns to the back-row for the first time since the win over Bedford Blues in September, alongside Freddie Clarke and Captain Mark Bright. 
 
Matt Heeks and Oli Grove continue their half-back partnership, with Jason Harries and Drew Locke starting at 12 and 13.
 
Joe Marchant and Matt Williams occupy the wings, with Peter Lydon at full-back.
 
David Cherry, James Gibbons and Jimmy Litchfield offer front-row back-up, with Kieran Treadwell and Rory Bartle also on the bench.
 
Ben Calder will look to make a second consecutive appearance at scrum-half from the bench, and Craig Jackson will also provide back-line cover for the Scots. 
 
Adam Kwasnicki says that the Scots are all fully focused on securing a first league victory in three matches. “We are working incredibly hard on the training pitch to improve as individuals and as a team we will continue to do so, we are confident that consistency of results will follow.”
 
He added: “It has been a challenging start and we are searching for that consistency of performance which will send us back up the table where we want to be.”
