Head coach Gary Gold urged Bath Rugby to be more clinical after they got back to winning ways with a 31-10 victory over Sale Sharks at The Rec.
Fly-half Olly Barkley kicked 16 points on his final appearance for the club before departing for Racing Metro 92 and, alongside Davey Wilson's touchdown, helped put Bath 19-3 up after 50 minutes.
The Aviva Premiership's bottom side soon rallied in search of their first win of the campaign but a 20-minute spell of dominance was only rewarded with a converted try for Johnny Leota before the home side regained control late on.
And although pleased to pick up a third win of the season, Gold knows his side remain a long way from the finished article.
"We're satisfied with the defensive performance but at 19-3 we need to learn to kill off teams because they came back into it at 19-10," said Gold. "You need to go for the jugular and put teams to bed.
"We can still work really hard on our attack as we have a very exciting back three and we need to bring them into the game more often. We do that by setting a platform and getting on the front foot.
