Marcos Alonso, Lee Chung-Yong and Keith Andrews get on the scoresheet as Bolton Wanderers beat 10-man Birmingham City 3-1 at the Reebok Stadium.

Bolton Wanderers have responded to back-to-back Championship defeats by recording an impressive win over Birmingham City at the Reebok Stadium this afternoon.

Blues forward Nikola Zigic, who was sent off late in the second half, opened the scoring early on, but Marcos Alonso, Lee Chung-Yong and Keith Andrews responded to seal the points for Bolton.

Zigic broke the deadlock on 11 minutes when he headed beyond Adam Bogdan from six yards following a pinpoint cross from Chris Burke.

Wanderers responded well to falling behind and deservedly levelled 16 minutes later, Tyrone Mears finding Alonso, who nodded home from close range.

The hosts completed the turnaround on 33 minutes courtesy of a brilliant piece of play between Kevin Davies and Lee.

Davies found Lee with a perfectly-weighted through ball and the South Korean international beat Jack Butland with a clinical finish.

Bolton were awarded a penalty kick 12 minutes from time when Steven Caldwell was penalised for handball.

Butland dived the correct way, but he was unable to stop Andrews converting the spot kick and notching his third goal in as many games.

Zigic's red card came with just three minutes remaining when he was shown a second yellow card for a clumsy tackle on Tim Ream.
