Influential flanker Wayne O'Connor returns to the Ponty line-up.
Pontypridd are now on the home straight to the end of a long season, with a run of two home games to finish off their campaign.
Llandovery are the visitors to Sardis Road tomorrow (KO 2:30pm). The Drovers are poised perilously close to the Premiership drop zone, but that in itself, along with their comfortable home win over Ponty in the corresponding fixture back in December, will make them a dangerous animal to contend with.
Whilst the Drovers will be fighting for their lives in the top flight, Ponty will seek to maintain their season-long winning run at Sardis, hoping to make third place in the table, or at least to consolidate a fourth place finish.
Having lost a close encounter away to champions Cardiff midweek, Ponty suffered another injury blow, with winger Owen Williams departing the game concussed. He joins centre Adam Thomas (concussion), outside half Gareth McCarthy (hamstring), prop Pat Palmer (shoulder), lock Grant Harrington (hamstring) and flanker Kristian Dacey (knee) on the sick list.
To compensate for those absentees, full back Matt Hutchings makes a comeback from injury to be placed on the bench, and influential flanker Wayne O'Connor from suspension to return to the starting line up. Lewis Williams comes in on the wing, with Stuart Williams at loose head prop, partnering hooker Huw Dowden and tight head Sam Hobbs in a revised front row union.
Pontypridd: 15.Kristian Baller. 14.Lewis Williams. 13.Gavin Dacey. 12.Mike Davies. 11.Chris Clayton. 10.Dai Flanagan. 9.Andrew Jenkins. 1.Stuart Williams. 2.Huw Dowden. 3.Sam Hobbs. 4.Ryan Savage. 5.Chris Dicomidis. 6.Rhys Lloyd. 7.Wayne O'Connor. 8.Nathan Strong (capt).

Glyncoch have had a remarkable past couple of seasons, having lost just once in the last two seasons. Their fine form has been capped by claiming the South Central Division 5 crown of the SWALEC League.
With two rounds of the HSBC Sevens World Series remaining, Wales head coach Paul John has sprung a few surprises for this week's penultimate round in Glasgow. And there's still plenty to play for with World Cup spots on the line.
