Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Davies praises his side's character, despite their 31-25 defeat at Bath in the Aviva Premiership on Friday.

Gloucester Rugby director of rugby Nigel Davies has hailed his side's character, despite their defeat at Bath in the Aviva Premiership on Friday.

The visitors, who had a man sent off, went down 31-25 to their local rivals at the Recreation Ground to suffer their fourth league loss in six matches.

"I was delighted with that last period, the last 30 [minutes] we played with 14 men," Davies told Sky Sports News.

"For the boys to respond like they did was fabulous. That's the character that this team has shown this year."

Fourth-placed Gloucester could find themselves out of the playoff places on Saturday if Northampton Saints beat London Irish.
