Aviva Premiership: Nigel Davies delighted with spirit his side showed against Bath
Gloucester boss Nigel Davies believes his side's trademark "resilience and composure" were responsible for their 16-10 come-from-behind win against Bath.
A second-half try from full-back Rob Cook was decisive as Gloucester fought back from 10 points down to make it five games unbeaten in the Aviva Premiership.
Fly-half Freddie Burns scored a drop-goal, two penalties and converted Cook's touchdown, leaving Bath to rue their failure to fully capitalise on their early dominance.
"We had no control of the first-half. We were on the back foot almost everywhere," Davies said.
"It was important to sort things out. It was certainly a game of two halves, and we managed to bring width and continuity in the second period.
"Perhaps we were a bit complacent in the build-up this week, but it was pretty easy at half-time because we had been so far off the game. We knew what we had to do. We showed the resilience and composure which is a hallmark of this team."
Bath head coach Gary Gold appeared to have an issue with the breakdown and on two separate occasions he could be seen airing his displeasure at officials, but he did not attend the post-match press conference to explain further.
Instead coach Toby Booth said: "We have got to be good enough to take the referee out of the equation and look after ourselves. We deserved to be a little further in front than 10-0, but you need to convert when you are in the ascendancy.
"We had opportunities to convert, and in tight games - especially away from home - you have to take what is on offer, but unfortunately we didn't do that. There is plenty to be positive about, though.
"The Premiership season is a long road, and there were plenty of positives today, but make no bones about it we are bitterly disappointed with the result."Aviva Premiership. Click here to bet.
