Sheffield United produced a stunning comeback to beat Walsall.

The Saddlers went in front seconds after half-time when Kevan Hurst's low shot beat Blades keeper Steve Simonsen.

Will Grigg made it 2-0 with a close range finish from a corner only for Lee Williamson to set up Matthew Lowton to reduce the arrears.

Williamson levelled with a super strike and then won a penalty when he was fouled by Mat Sadler, with Richard Cresswell converting the kick.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"We sort of got to grips with the game for a period in the first-half and maybe settled ourselves down. In the second-half we never started and unfortunately it's a mistake from our point of view to let the first goal in.

"It inspired us and the beautiful thing from my point of view is if someone makes a mistake, the rest of the lads were there to rally around him.

"I've learnt the team are very courageous, they still kept doing the things you wanted them to do even in the latter stages of the game."
