Bristol have slipped to five straight defeats in Aviva Premiership Rugby since beating Bath 12-11 at Ashton Gate on 26 February.
Newcastle Falcons still have an outside chance of finishing in seventh place in the table and maybe making the European Champions Cup play-offs. The Falcons last four matches have all been won by the home side on the day, whilst the Tynesiders two victories on the road in Premiership Rugby this season were at Gloucester in round 4 and at Northampton in round 9.
Newcastle’s only defeat in their last five fixtures with Bristol was 14-19 at Kingston Park in the Championship in April 2013. This is the Falcons first ever visit to Ashton Gate.
