Bath head coach Gary Gold says he accepts the blame for their "disappointing" Premiership campaign.
The West Country club, who have never won the league in the professional era, are currently seventh in the table and 11 points from the play-offs.
South African Gold, in his first season in charge at the Rec, told BBC Radio Bristol: "We've been disappointing by our own standards.
"I take full responsibility. We could have been in a much better position."
