JAYDEN BOGLE and Billy Shapr fired comeback goals as Sheffield United’s third win in five matches boosted their hopes of a remarkable great escape from bottom spot.

The Blades are now just a point off West Brom, who went in front on 40 minutes when Matt Phillips prodded home following a double block from Blades’ keeper  Aaron Ramsdale.

But soon after the break Bogle reacted quickly to smash the home side level.

That sparked a powerful final half-hour from the Blades as they sought the win that would cut the deficit on second-bottom West Brom to just one point.

And finally striker Sharp put United in front on 73 minutes.

Not for the first time it was a cross from the right that troubled the Baggies, with Sharp reacting fasted after the ball hit team-mate John Egan.
