Bath came from behind late on to defeat Glasgow in the Heineken Cup on Saturday afternoon. The English side led for much of the game but looked to be in trouble when they found themselves a point down with less than twenty minutes to play.

Duncan Weir got the Scots off to the perfect start and thanks to his penalty they led 0-3 early on. However, Tom Biggs then touche down for a Bath try,which Olly Barkley converted. Weir and Barkley can swapped penalties to leave it 10-6 to the English side. That was how it stood at the break but things were about to take a turn.

After just three minutes of the second half, Ben Skirving crossed over to leave Bath 15-6 in front. The extras were added by Barkley and suddenly at 17-6,the home side looked like stretching clear and winning easily. However, Seymour hit back with a try for Glasgow and Wight converted to leave it 17-11. Rob Harley then shocked the favourites as scored to give his side a 17-18 advantage.

Bath stepped up a gear after that score and two late penalties from Barkley gave them a 23-18 lead. That was how it stayed until the finish and the English side held out to claim the points.
