Blues battle back to down Latics

Date published: Saturday 5th December 2009 5:17

It is now six matches without defeat for Alex McLeish’s side, who find themselves riding high in an unaccustomed eighth position in the Premier League and comfortably on course for survival.

Two free-kicks from Sebastian Larsson sandwiched a second goal of the season for Christian Benitez, all in the space of 11 maddening minutes for Martinez, whose side had easily led 1-0 at the break via a stunning effort from Charles N’Zogbia.

That should have been the platform for back-to-back wins for the Latics for the first time this season following last weekend’s 1-0 win over Sunderland.

But Birmingham had different ideas and on their second-half display will feel they fully deserved the victory.
