Bridgend beat Cardiff in the cup earlier this season.
Bridgend resume their British & Irish Cup campaign at the Brewery Field this Saturday with the first of two back-to-back fixtures against Bristol. (KO 2.30pm)
The Ravens sit third in Pool 1 of the competition, following a loss to Ulster Ravens in Belfast and victory at home to Cardiff. They go into this weekend's match on the back of a narrow 16-19 defeat at the hands of the Blue and Blacks at The Arms Park where they were unlucky not to get more than a losing bonus point.
Clubs from the English Championship top six of the eight B&I Cup groups and the Ravens' opponents Bristol are one of them.
They too overturned Cardiff in their opening match before battling to an impressive 34-28 victory over Ulster. The men from the south west of England are also having a reasonable domestic season, currently occupying fifth place in the Championship. They come into this fixture on the back of three straight league victories, including a 43-16 hammering of London Scottish.
In the backs, Ben Thomas continues at full back for Bridgend with the other changes being the return of Tom Habberfield at scrum half and Sam Campbell who partners Nathan Edwards in the centre.
Elsewhere, it's as you were against Cardiff. In the front row, Chris Francis is replaced at hooker by Ashleigh James who makes up a strong front row with Ken Dowding and Jonny Thomas. Shaun O'Rourke and Alex Jones continue in the boiler house, with captain Jonathan Vaughan, Scott Hicks and Andrew Waite, fresh from his try scoring appearance last weekend at the Arms Park, in the back row.
For Bristol, Tom Slater is set for his first competitive start of the season as coach Liam Middleton names a strong line-up.
There are seven changes in total from the side that beat London Scottish - five of which are in the pack.
In a relatively unchanged backline, Matt Williams makes his first start since the B&I Cup victory over Cardiff in October.
Scotland international Kyle Traynor returns to a new-look front row alongside Rhys Lawrence and Gaston Cortes, while Ben Glynn and Marco Mama are also included.
Middleton opts for a five forwards and two backs split on the bench, with George Biagi included among the replacements.
