Incredibly the last seven occasions that the teams have met have resulted in a victory for the AWAY side. Sale have won on their last four visits to Sixways since a 23-10 Warriors victory on 25 February 2005.
Worcester Warriors have won just one of their three matches so far, but have been victorious in four of their last five games at Sixways in all competitions.
Sale Sharks have not won since their opening day victory over defending Guinness Premiership champions Leicester at Edgeley Park. The Sharks return to the site of their most recent away victory: 37-20 at Sixways on 31 January.
