Saints assistant coach Alan Dickens is refusing to underestimate winless Worcester Warriors ahead of today’s game at Franklin’s Gardens (kick-off 3pm).
The Warriors have lost all 13 of their Aviva Premiership games to date, shipping 340 points in the process.
But they pushed Leicester Tigers close last Friday night, eventually falling to a 23-22 defeat against the reigning champions at Sixways.
And Dickens is taking nothing for granted ahead of today’s Gardens clash, which could bring Saints’ 10th consecutive win in all competitions.
“We can’t underestimate them,” he said. “They’ve got some good players, good professionals and they’re fighting for every single point they can get.
“We respect them and they pushed Leicester really, really close last week.
“They put in a performance there and they will be looking to build on that.”
