Five players are set to be involved after missing last weekend's clash with Newcastle Falcons, whilst four of the club's FOSROC Scottish Rugby Academy talents also take their place in the matchday squad.
Summer signing Simon Berghan is named in a Glasgow Warriors squad for the first time since making the switch from Edinburgh, with the tight-head lining up alongside Tom Lambert and Johnny Matthews in the front row.
The back-three combination sees Stafford McDowall selected at full-back for the first time in his Glasgow career, with the lightning-quick pair of Cole Forbes and Rufus McLean flanking him on the wings.
Australian international Jack Dempsey is in contention for his first run-out in a Glasgow shirt after being selected amongst the replacements, which also see loose-head Brad Thyer included after the Welshman arrived on a short-term loan deal from Cardiff Rugby earlier this week.
Speaking following selection, Head Coach Wilson told glasgowwarriors.org: "Our game against Newcastle was our first opportunity for our squad to get some game time under their belts. We exposed 30 players to the game, which we don't get the opportunity to do very often.
"This week, we will be looking to build on some of the areas that were positive as well as some of the areas we need to improve on.
"Again, we are looking forward to exposing a variety of combinations on Friday night. Worcester start their league campaign next week so we expect to face a strong team tomorrow night."
