Kieran Gibbs strikes late on as Baggies shock Blades with spirited comeback after falling behind to Championship promotion rivals

Category : Championship , Football

KIERAN GIBBS was the unlikely hero as West Brom came from behind to stun Sheffield United.
The former Arsenal left-back pounced with just 15 minutes to go at Bramall Lane to seal three vital points in the race for promotion.

West Brom have now moved into third to close the gap on second-placed Leeds and table-topping Norwich, albeit having played a game more.
But they had to survive a scare as Blades striker Billy Sharp fluffed the chance to claim a share of the spoils late on.
The visiting defence struggled to clear their lines as the ball fell kindly to the hotshot, but the Sheff United skipper slashed at it and blazed it over the bar.
His team-mate David McGoldrick managed to keep his head with just over ten minutes gone to break the deadlock.

Despite having his first shot saved by Baggies ‘keeper Sam Johnstone, he coolly slotted home the rebound for a deserved lead.
United dominated for the majority of the first half, but they let West Brom back into it before the break.

Harvey Barnes produced some magic to get to the byline and cut it back for Gareth Barry to thump home left-footed at the back post.
That knocked the stuffing out of the Blades as they never really recovered, and Barnes sparkled again by backheeling into the path of Gibbs to power the ball into the net after a cross from Matt Philips to secure the victory.
