Leicester made it two wins from two matches in the LV= Cup as they rallied from 10-0 down to claim a hard-fought 21-18 victory over Worcester in front of a crowd of 9,855 at Sixways.
The home side, who had also won their opening group game, started strongly and took the lead in the fifth minute when Andy Symons, who had already missed a long-range penalty attempt, touched down after a quick Worcester counter-attack from inside their own 22, inspired by Max Stelling.
Paul Warwick missed the conversion and he was also off target 11 minutes later after Jake Abbott had added a second try for the Warriors following a rapid break set up by Symons.
Owen Williams replied with two penalties for the Tigers - either side of a bad miss by Symons - and he reduced the deficit to only one point with a drop-goal moments before the interval with Sam Betty in the sin-bin for the hosts.
Leicester took the lead for the first time five minutes after the restart thanks to a try from Michael Noone following good forward pressure although Williams was wide with his conversion attempt.
Worcester responded with a penalty from Warwick, but the Tigers twice went close to adding a second try as Matt Smith just failed to score in the corner before Jamie Gibson's storming run came up just short.
The visitors' second touchdown finally arrived through a penalty try in the 67th minute when the Warriors could not cope with a scrummage drive, with Williams' conversion making it 21-13.
Worcester then launched a late onslaught which saw Leicester reduced to 14 men after Gibson was yellow carded with four minutes remaining, but the Tigers held firm despite Christian Scotland-Williamson crossing for a late try for the Warriors.LV Anglo-Welsh Cup. Click here to bet.
