Both Montauban and Clermont Auvergne will be looking for their first wins of the Heineken Cup when they clash on Sunday.

Montauban, heroic in defeat at Munster last round, include former Clermont wing Vilimoni Delasau in their starting XV. Impressive scrum-half Petre Mitu continues, while former Scottish international Scott Murray drops to the bench after his exertions last weekend.

Clermont will be looking for a confidence boosting win after their hammering to Sale last weekend, and they filed a strong side. Brock James partners Pierre Mignoni at half-back while giant French international wing Julien Malzieu will be looking to cause Montauban some problems out wide.

Both sides badly need a victory if they are to rescue their campaigns and challenge Munster and Sale, who clash at Edgeley Park this weekend.

Montauban: Julien Laharrague, Yoan Audrin, Jean Philippe Viard, Rida Jahouer, Vilimoni Delasau, Régis Lespinas, Petre Mitu, Goderzi Shvelidze, Brice Mach, Nick Adams, Karim Ghezal, Rowan Frost, Yannick Caballero, Marc Raynaud (c), Matthew Clarkin,

Replacements: Grégory Parriel, Laurent DelBoulbes, Benjamin Sa, Scott Murray, Abdellatif Boutaty, Fabien Fortassin, Julien Audy
