Newcastle boss Gary Gold has named an unchanged line-up for his side's must-win Aviva Premiership clash with Wasps on Saturday.
In order to avoid being relegated this weekend, the Falcons need to win, score four or more tries and deny Wasps a losing bonus point.
Despite falling to a narrow 9-3 defeat against Saracens last time out, Gold has stuck by the starting XV that competed valiantly that day.
So often in recent times the boot of Jimmy Gopperth has provided the platform for a Falcons win, but the Kingston Park outfit will need tries - not just points from the Kiwi's boot - if they're to pull off the great escape this time around.
"First and foremost we have to win the game and no other factors come into the equation without that," asserted Gold.
"I would be lying if I said (needing to score four tries) was not a factor and it had not changed our approach, but in saying that there has never been a game we have gone into where I have said I don't want us to score four tries," he added.
"We always want to do that, especially given the position we have been in, but the reality is that we are going to have to go down to Wasps and do something we have never done before.
"To be absolutely blunt about it we need to be a hell of a lot better than we have been."
Wasps welcome back skipper Marco Wentzel for the game, with the South African taking his place in the second row.
Wentzel's return sees Joe Launchbury switch to the back row, with Sam Jones shifted into the number seven jersey vacated by the injured Jonathan Poff.
In the back-line, Richard Haughton is named at full-back, while Elliot Daly comes in at outside centre to partner Dom Waldouck in the midfield.
"As I have been saying all week, the focus tomorrow is simply on the winning the game and if we do that everything else will take care of itself," Wasps chief Dai Young told the club's official website.
"I have no doubt Newcastle will come here full of belief they can do the job they need to, so it's up to us to make sure we are in control. I know the boys are very excited about the chance to run out in front of a full-house and our fans will create a wonderful atmosphere."
