Dominic Solanke scored his 20th goal of the season to help 10-man Bournemouth move back into second place in the Sky Bet Championship with an incident-packed 3-1 win at home to Birmingham.

Ryan Christie and Jaidon Anthony were also on the scoresheet as the Cherries made amends for Sunday's shock FA Cup defeat at home to non-league Boreham Wood.
