Aviva Premiership relegation favourites Worcester suffered a survival hammer-blow at Sixways as Wasps stole an unlikely late 13-11 win.

The Warriors led 11-6 approaching the final minute after flanker Sam Betty's second-half try looked to have secured four priceless points.

Wasps had been the Warriors' last Premiership victims on March 1, 2013, since when Worcester had gone 21 league games without a win.

But Wasps prop Jake Cooper-Woolley touched down from close-range, and former Worcester fly-half Andy Goode converted with the game's final kick to edge Wasps home.

Worcester are now 10 points adrift of 11th-placed Newcastle with just five league games left, and they will travel to Tyneside on Sunday week knowing they have to win following an excruciating 13-11 defeat at Wasps' hands.
