Sheffield Utd fight back to claim priceless 2-1 victory over West Brom

Sheffield United fought back to claim a priceless Premier League victory over fellow strugglers West Brom.

With their clubs occupying the bottom two positions in the top-flight, both managers had identified the importance of this fixture to their hopes of avoiding relegation.

And initially the Baggies’ more direct approach appeared to give them the upper hand at a rain-soaked Bramall Lane, according to BBC Sport report.

Callum Robinson had already pulled a left-foot shot wide when Matt Phillips tapped in the opener after home goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale had parried efforts from Robinson and Mbaye Diagne.

However, the Blades improved after the break and levelled when Jayden Bogle lashed a left-footed effort into the bottom right corner after being teed up by Chris Basham.

Ramsdale’s superb close-range save from Robinson then provided his side with the platform to go on and win the contest.

And Billy Sharp’s prodded finish into the bottom left corner saw the Blades collect only their third win of the season.

While Chris Wilder’s side remain bottom of the table they are now just a point behind West Brom, in 19th, and are 10 points from safety.
