Second-half strikes from Chris Burke and Marlon King hand Birmingham City all three points against Bristol City.

Birmingham City secured only their second victory in seven games with a comfortable win at home to Bristol City this evening.

Lee Clark's side dominated possession in the first half but were wasteful with a series of chances.

Chris Burke had a shot cleared off the line by Liam Fontaine before Wade Elliot and Marlon King went close for the Blues.

Bristol's resistance was finally broken after 60 minutes when Burke made no mistake from a tight angle after neat approach play from King.

The Blues made the points safe late in the second half when Marlon King combined with Nikola Zigic to head home after a long ball from Jack Butland.

Peter Lovenkrands had a penalty saved in stoppage time after Burke was fouled in the area by Martyn Woolford.

Ten minutes of injury time made no difference to the result as the home side held firm to register a clean sheet, a feat the visitors have yet to manage this season.
