The match, which kicks off at 7.45pm, will see the two closely placed sides do battle in a key test for Glenn Delaney’s men who will be looking for their sixth league win in as many games.
The last three games the sides have contested on Nottingham territory have brought victory for the home sides, with tries from many current Green and Whites first team stars, including David Jackson, Tim Usasz, Jack Cobden, Andy Savage, Neil Fowkes, Ben Johnston and Luke Sherriff.
Tonight will provide Director of Rugby Delaney the final opportunity to hone the extra prowess of New Zealand International Williams, whose arrival to the club at the end of December stunned the rugby world.
Speaking ahead of the fixture, Delaney said: “The squad has been performing at a consistently high level in the Championship for back to back games since last year, so we’re confident about taking that form into this game and getting the result we want in front of the home crowd.
“Having Ali for this key match is an obvious boost to the side. He’s fitted in incredibly well through this month and has been the asset we all knew he would be.
“Overall the squad is looking strong at the moment, with injuries not hampering us too much for the time being. Despite the fixture pile-up we can call on all our key guys this evening and we can be confident of going out and playing our best game.”
