Birmingham defender Ridgewell enjoyed battle with Bolton captain Davies

Birmingham City defender Liam Ridgewell enjoyed his battle with Bolton Wanderers captain Kevin Davies.

Wanderers overcame the sending off of goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen to recover from a two-goal deficit and claim a 2-2 draw from a fiery Barclays Premier League encounter with Birmingham.

On Davies, Ridgewell said: "He is a difficult customer. You know it is always a difficult game against him.

"He likes a battle and you have got to try to play him as best you can.

"It's a difficult venue to come to and it's a point gained from the start of the day but it is disappointing.

"We were 2-0 up going into the 70th minute and we have come away with a draw.

"It is definitely two points dropped from that point of view.

"Going into the season you want to be unbeaten and that is a positive for us but it just feels like a defeat coming away when we should have won."
