Glasgow will return from the south of France with their heads held high after an agonising 10-8 defeat to Castres saw them slump to a fourth-straight loss in Pool Four of the Heineken Cup.

The visitors forged an 8-3 lead at the break thanks to a John Barclay try but Castres fought back, and a Ruaridh Jackson penalty to win the match bounced back off the post as the French side held on. In a close match at the Pierre-Antoine Stadium, it was Gregor Townsend's Warriors who burst into life quickest and registered a first score with less than two minutes on the clock.

Peter Horne made no mistake with a penalty in front of the posts, while Romain Teulet levelled just three minutes later for the hosts. Iosefa Tekori crossed over a try late on and Daniel Kirkpatrick's conversion proved to be the difference between the two sides.
