ANDY Keast has warned his Worcester side -- we're not safe yet.

The Warriors head coach has seen the Zurich Premiership new boys climb up to ninth in the table after two successive wins.

However, he's anxious to hammer home the message that Worcester face a massive test against Sale Sharks at Sixways tomorrow evening (8pm).

The Warriors gained universal acclaim following their 15-9 victory at the Stoop on Saturday but Keast feels his team have to guard against complacency -- especially against the side that hammered them 57-3 in September.

"You can get wrapped up in all the elation after such a good performance on Saturday," said Keast.

"However, we are not safe. The team enjoyed some good Press this week after our win at Harlequins but the fact is that we need more points. It's all about accumulating points before we are safe.


"Sale may have five or six players out because of the internationals. However, they are quality. It's a very similar situation to when we played Leicester at Sixways during an international break.

"They were missing plenty of players and yet they beat us comfortably. We have to be on our guard because the team that arrive here tomorrow night are a top side.

"The league table doesn't lie. They are the second best team in the Premiership.

"We only have to think back to the last time we played them. They out-gunned us in all departments and the defeat hurt badly."

Worcester make just one change to the side which destroyed Harlequins. Giscard Pieters comes in on the wing for Ben Hinshelwood who is included in Scotland's 22 to face Italy.

Gary Trueman moves into a Warriors squad which is bubbling with confidence.

"We've had two good wins and two impressive performances," added Keast. "You've got to be confident after that but it's about backing up those performances and we have to do it again tomorrow."

Warriors: Delport; O'Leary, Rasmussen, Lombard, Pieters; Brown, Powell; Windo, Van Niekerk, Horsman, Collier, Gillies, Hickey, Sanderson, MacLeod-Henderson. Replacements: Fortey, Daly, Murphy, Vaili, Cole, Hayes, Trueman.
