Matt O'Connor has issued an injury update ahead of the visit to Scotstoun.
Dan Leavy suffered a medial strain to his right knee in the Bank of Ireland pre-season friendly defeat to Ulster last Saturday. The injury, while not as bad as first suspected, will still keep the young UCD flanker out of action for between 6-8 weeks.
Jordi Murphy is also expected to be sidelined for up to 12 weeks having undergone surgery on a troublesome shoulder injury that had caused him some discomfort during the run in last season.
Finally, Dave Kearney and Richardt Strauss - suffering from long term knee and hamstring injuries respectively - continue to be monitored on a daily basis but both players are recovering well and are on schedule for a return to fitness within the next few months.
