olton posted their first pre-season victory with a 3-1 triumph over Orlando City at the Citrus Bowl in Florida on Sunday night.

Kevin Davies powered home a Martin Petrov cross for the opener in the 18th minute and, although Matt Luzunaris got the hosts back on level terms before the half-hour, Wanderers soon surged ahead again.

Darren Pratley was first to react inside a packed penalty area following Lee Chung-yong's outswinging cross and then Petrov's classy finish six minutes before the break gave the visitors a two-goal cushion.

Defender Zat Knight was substituted in the first half as a precautionary measure after suffering a thigh strain in the build-up to Orlando's equaliser.
