Warriors battle back at Firhill
Glasgow down Ospreys to end four-match losing streak
Glasgow produced a stirring second-half performance to beat Ospreys 31-23 in their Magners League clash at Firhill on Sunday.
After trailing 16-11 at half-time the Warriors stepped it up after the break, running in three tries to end a four-match losing streak in the league.
The hosts made a terrible start, their game littered with poor handling and awful tackling in the opening exchanges.
Dan Biggar put Ospreys ahead with a penalty after just three minutes as a result of Glasgow's dreadful handling.
And three minutes later Scotland wing Nikki Walker brushed off Rob Dewey's hopeless tackle to cross for the first try after he was released by Jerry Collins and Lee Byrne.
Ruaridh Jackson slotted a penalty for Glasgow on the 15 minute mark to close the gap but Biggar replied soon after with his second three pointer.
By now the home side seemed to have woken up and their first try came when Colin Gregor fed lock Richie Gray, who set off over the 22 before selling an outrageous dummy to score.
The Warriors looked to be in the ascendancy now but it was the simplest of defensive errors that led to Walker claiming his second.
Tommy Bowe and Biggar gave a bewildered Glasgow defence the run around before releasing Walker for the try.
Dougie Hall was pulled down inches short with three minutes to go to the break and Gray and Moray Low were held up.
Ryan Jones collected a yellow card for a professional foul and Jackson struck the resulting penalty to take Glasgow into the break five points adrift.
Glasgow's confidence continued to grow after the restart and Jackson cut the deficit to two points with another penalty.
Biggar missed the opportunity to restore the Welsh outfit's margin and Jackson then failed to kick his side into the lead.
But minutes later his replacement Duncan Weir slotted over to take the home side ahead for the first time in the game.
Ospreys defence was beginning looking increasingly creaky and when Barclay stole the ball from the base of an Ospreys scrum Vernon crashed over from Gregor's pass.
Weir converted and props Richie Vernon and Kevin Tkachuk combined to put the latter over and end any hopes Ospreys may have had of grinding a result from the game.
Walker completed his hat-trick with an injury time try but there was no way back for the Welsh stars, who missed out on a losing bonus point.
