Wolverhampton Wanders moved off the bottom of the Elite Group after recording a come-from-behind victory over West Ham United in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League.
The visitors had the better of the opening exchanges at Telford United's New Bucks Head ground and they took the lead with eight minutes to go in the first half when Sebastian Lletget finished calmly after latching on to Elliot Lee's through ball.
Both sides had chances to score after the break but it was the hosts who were able to equalise with eight minutes to go. Substitute Frazer Shaw was adjudged to have fouled Lee in area and Jake Cassidy fired home the penalty kick.
And in the last minute, Wolves claimed a dramatic winner when Frazer Shaw lost possession and Liam McAlinden squared for Robbie Parry to hit into the roof of the net.
It is Wolves' first victory of Phase 2 of the Barclays Under-21 Premier League and they now lie in seventh place with four points from five matches.
