Lee grabs the points for Bolton

Chung-Yong Lee snatched a late victory for Bolton after Alex McLeish's Birmingham looked to have saved a point at St Andrews.

Chung-Yong Lee snatched a late victory for Bolton after Alex McLeish's Birmingham looked to have saved a point at St Andrews. The visitors took the lead in true Bolton style after just eight minutes. A long throw was flicked on by striker Kevin Davies and Tamir Cohen provided the finish past Joe Hart for his third goal of the season. After the early setback, Birmingham dominated the rest of the first half but scoring goals has been a problem for McLeish's side and they had to wait for substitute Kevin Phillips to equalise six minutes from time with only their fourth league strike of the season. With the game looking to be headed for a draw Matthew Taylor's free-kick rebounded off the post and Lee was on hand to provide the finish. Man of the match: Kevin Davies (Bolton)
