Three second-half goals gave Swansea City victory as they beat Birmingham City 3-0 at Liberty Stadium.

After a goalless opening 45 minutes, half-time substitute Kyle Naughton fired in the opener with a 63rd minute long-range strike after Birmingham failed to clear the danger.

Just four minutes later and the home side were 2-0 up, Bersant Celina rifling a poweful effort into the roof of the net.

Swansea continued to dominate and when Marc Roberts tripped Yan Dhanda, a penalty was given and converted by Borja Baston who sent Lee Camp the wrong way to claim his fifth goal of the season.

The win moves Swansea into second, where they are joint top with Leeds United, who they face next Saturday, on 13 points.
