The capital side, fourth in Conference B after four defeats in their opening seven matches including last week’s reverse against Zebre in Parma, are aiming for a sixth straight victory at BT Murrayfield.
“It will be a challenge for us, but the only way for young players to get blooded and learn is by playing them,” said head coach Richard Cockerill.
“We’ve got to work hard with the players we’ve got, roll up our sleeves and prepare as well as we can to try and win on Friday night.
“That’s my job. I don’t think we have to lift the players – the players are motivated to win. We clearly weren’t good enough Zebre
But we’ve worked really hard this week and will leave everything out on the field come Friday night.”
Scarlets coach Wayne Pivac has warned his side, who are five points behind Conference B leaders Leinster in second, to expect a “backlash” from Edinburgh, who beat them 52-14 in last season’s corresponding fixture.
“We’d certainly be expecting an improved performance and I would think they’d be better than they were on the weekend,” he said.
“Last year we were punished and that’s fresh in the memory. We want to go there and put in a much better performance.
