The black, green and gold go to Sixways on the back of a hugely frustrating 28-21 defeat to Bristol Bears at Franklin's Gardens last Sunday.

Saints had led 21-14 until two tries in the final five minutes proved to be their undoing.

And they will now bid to bounce back immediately against a Worcester side who are currently bottom of the Gallagher Premiership.

"If we perform well, the wins will come," Boyd said.

"If we get our game right and people play to the expectation we have of them, we'll get our fair share of wins.

"What that means for the table, we'll have to wait and see."

And on Worcester, who have not won a league game since November 21, Boyd said: "They can play, they've got some very good players.

"They create a lot and sometimes don't take those chances but they do create a lot and you've got to get your game right on all sorts of levels.

"The first thing is to get your head around the game, get mentally right and go down and do a job.

"All the games can be tough and they've had some really good performances during the past month."
