But with their home record completely intact in 2018, the men in black, green and gold are striving to keep it that way as they take on bottom-of-the-table London Irish.
Despite a bright first 30 minutes, a Bath try just before the end of the first half seemed to zap the energy out of Saints at the Recreation Ground.
Still just eleven points off the top six, a win this weekend could put Saints back in touching distance of the top half of the table.
And with bottom-of-the-table London Irish coming to town, Saints will be hoping for exactly that as they look to continue their unbeaten home run in 2018.
But with London Irish without a win since the season opener, the Exiles will have a point to prove as they head to Franklin's Gardens.
London Irish aren't without fight though and having pushed their last two outings in the Aviva Premiership to a close finish, will be sure to push Saints as hard as they can on Saturday.
