Pool 1/4 fixtures

Bath v Ospreys, Saturday 7 February, KO 3pm

Bath and Ospreys play each other in the LV= Cup for the first time in five seasons. Bath won the last fixture at The Rec 21-11 on 14 November 2009 with Ospreys' only other visit to Bath ending in a 31-24 win in October 2006. The overall head-to-head record stands at two wins for Bath and one for Ospreys.

Gloucester v Harlequins, Saturday 7 February, KO 3pm

This is only the second meeting between the sides in the competition since the Anglo-Welsh format was adopted. A last-minute try from Tom Voyce, converted by Tim Taylor, earned Gloucester a 31-29 win when the sides met at the Twickenham Stoop in February 2010.

Newport Gwent Dragons v London Welsh, Sunday 8 February, KO 2.30pm

There was little more than pride to play for when these sides met for the first time two years ago at the same stage of the competition, and the same applies on Sunday with neither team having any chance of progressing to the knockout stages. Dragons ran riot after the break in the 2013 encounter at the Kassam Stadium, to overturn a 9-6 half-time deficit and win 42-14.

Saracens v Exeter Chiefs, Sunday, 8 February KO 3pm (Live on Sky Sports 1)

Saracens have won all three matches at home against Exeter in the Premiership since the Chiefs beat them 23-9 in Watford on 30 October 2009. Owen Farrell, then the England Under-20 fly-half, produced a match-winning performance in the only previous LV= Cup tie played between the sides. Farrell contributed 28 of Saracens' points in a 43-20 win during the 2011/12 season.

Pool 2/3 fixtures

Sale Sharks v Scarlets, Saturday 7 February, KO 2pm

Both sides are out of contention for a semi-final spot after mustering just one win apiece from their first three games. Sale are bidding for a hat-trick of victories against the Scarlets in the LV= Cup after wins in 2012 and 2013.

Cardiff Blues v Leicester Tigers, Saturday 7 February, KO 2.30pm

Cardiff Blues and Leicester Tigers meet for the first time in a competitive fixture since Tigers won a dramatic Heineken Cup semi-final shootout at the Millennium Stadium in May 2009. They also played each other in the LV= Cup that year, Blues winning 23-9 at The Arms Park.

London Irish v Newcastle Falcons, Saturday 7 February, KO 3pm

London Irish are seeking to avoid a first-ever whitewash in the pool stages of the LV= Cup competition. Irish beat Newcastle 20-18 when the sides met in the Premiership at Kingston Park earlier in the season, and they have won their last four home games against the Falcons in all competitions. Newcastle's last success at the Madejski Stadium was in the league on 22 November 2011, when they won 15-11.

Northampton Saints v Wasps, Saturday 7 February, KO 3.15pm

Wasps ended a 10-game losing run against Saints in all competitions when they defeated the defending league champions 20-16 in round two of this season's Premiership. Wasps' last visit to Franklin's Gardens is best forgotten; they lost 74-13 after surrendering a 13-0 lead.
