Worcester Warriors boss Dean Ryan was happy enough to come away from The Rec with a losing bonus point against Bath.
The promoted side were competitive throughout against an out-of-sorts Bath but ultimately fell short of a result.
Worcester are tenth after seven matches but sit nine points above bottom side Newcastle Falcons, having started brightly on their return to the Premiership with two wins and three bonus points.
"We will take the bonus point. I am pretty proud of the guys' efforts," said Ryan.
"I like the way we are heading and the rugby we are playing, and a point here at the end of the season will look bigger than it does now.
"I am really excited what we will get out of 2016. I think we are really starting to travel, although we know we still have got some issues.
"It was a good point. Not many teams come away from here with something in the bank."
