Edinburgh broke their three-game losing streak with a gutsy 31-25 RaboDirect PRO12 win over Ospreys at Meggetland.
Although the visitors opened the scoring, Edinburgh had built up a 22-11 half-time lead thanks to tries from Grayson Hart (2) and centre Sam Beard, with full-back Carl Bezuidenhout kicking two conversions and a penalty.
Jeff Hassler's second try for Ospreys cut Edinburgh's lead to three points after the break, but three more penalties from Bezuidenhout saw them home.
The visitors made a fast start and capitalised when a long period of possession culminated with some slick passing in the three-quarters and a neat offload by flanker Justin Tipuric for winger Hassler to score - although Dan Biggar could not convert from far out.
Edinburgh responded after Ospreys had offended at a scrum. A long line-out drive finished with scrum-half Hart taking the ball and touching down behind the posts for Bezuidenhout to convert and the full-back soon added his first penalty.
The hosts then weathered some intense Ospreys pressure before registering their second try on 25 minutes, a piece of individual brilliance from winger Jack Cuthbert took him to the visitors' line, where he sent in centre Sam Beard.
By the turnaround, Edinburgh had registered a third try, again through Hart - and despite prop Geoff Cross being in the sin-bin. Hart was put in by flanker Roddy Grant at the end of a long spell of home possession, the score sandwiched by two Biggar penalties.
The Wales international fly-half would add two more in the early stages of the second period to trim the home side's lead to just five points by the 54th minute.
Bezuidenhou responded in kind with his second shortly afterwards, but Ospreys hit back immediately with Hassler confirmed in scoring his second unconverted try, after referee Fitzgibbon had consulted the TMO.
In the 70th minute Edinburgh pinned Ospreys in their 22 for the first time and, although nothing came of it, Bezuidenhout kicked his third penalty from the 10-metre line.
Edinburgh were now dominating territorially and as Ospreys found themselves on the back foot Beck was sin-binned and Bezuidenhout added another penalty.
With two minutes left Biggar kicked his fifth penalty to secure the losing bonus point and conclude the scoring.
