WORCESTER Warriors paceman Perry Humphreys is set to retain his place on the wing with doubts lingering over Josh Adams’ fitness ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Bath (3pm).

Director of rugby Alan Solomons said Adams was still “struggling” to shake off the hamstring problem that forced him to miss Warriors’ trip to Saracens at the weekend.

But Solomons is confident Humphreys will “step up to the mark” in the Gallagher Premiership tussle and show his “electric pace” after starring in the 25-17 defeat at Sarries.

Humphreys cut through the hosts’ defence before offloading to Ben Te’o who touched down for Warriors’ second try inside the opening 14 minutes.

And Solomons was also impressed by how well Humphreys defended against the reigning champions at Allianz Park.

“I am doubtful about Josh to be honest,” Solomons said.

“He is still struggling a bit with his hamstring.

“But Perry did very well on Saturday and that’s what it should be about.

“If a guy falls out because of injury there should be someone who can step up to the mark and do well.

“Perry did exactly that. I thought he had a terrific game.”

Humphreys scored six tries in 15 games for Warriors last season but missed most of the second half of the campaign due to a knee injury.

The 24-year-old has managed 10 outings this term with four in the Premiership but has also been forced to bide his time with Solomons preferring Bryce Heem and Adams on the flanks.

“He has had a lot of injuries and was out for a while which made last season difficult," Solomons said.

“I think he has played really well this year and had a particularly good game on the weekend.

“Perry has got electric place and I thought he defended well on Saturday as some of his reads were very good.”

Solomons has been boosted by the return of centre Ryan Mills, tighthead prop Nick Schonert and back rower Marco Mama to training this week after the trio were ruled out of Warriors’ visit to Sarries through injury.

“Nick should be fine as he has been training with us all week,” Solomons said.

“His sternoclavicular joint had a bit of fluid in it and it was felt advisable for him not to play but he will be 100 per cent available for selection.”

On Mills’ wrist issue, Solomons added: “Ryan has been trucking along alright so I am optimistic.

“We will have to see what Thursday brings when we will get greater clarity on him.”

Speaking immediately after Worcester’s defeat at Saracens, Solomons was “less positive” about Mama’s fitness due to “a problem with the tendon behind the knee”.

But at the club’s midweek press conference on Tuesday Solomons was more upbeat over the back rower’s chances of tackling Bath.

“I am reasonably optimistic about Marco being available,” Solomons said.

“He has trained with us so we will see what reaction he gets and then we will make a decision on Thursday.

“But it is progressing nicely and I am very positive from what I have seen.

“He took full part in Tuesday’s training so let’s see what Thursday brings.”
