Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi was profilic as West Brom grabbed a survival lifeline with a 3-2 a thrilling derby win at Wolves.
Quickfire goals from Fabio Silva and Willy Boly had given Wolves a half-time lead after Matheus Pereira’s penalty opener.
But Albion turned the first Black Country derby for nine years around with their own rapid response, Semi Ajayi’s header levelling before Pereira’s spot-kick winner soon after the break.
Allardyce’s side remain second bottom but are now just three points from the safety line before Brighton’s game at Leeds, remarkable given their abject form this season.
Semi Ajayi, 27, has netted two goals in 17 Premier League games for the Baggies this term.
