Michael Chopra put his winter goal drought behind him and pushed Cardiff back into the play-off places with a hat-trick in a 3-2 win over Leicester.

The 23-year-old had scored just two goals in his previous 16 outings before crashing home three inside 50 minutes to give Cardiff boss Dave Jones a win in his 500th game as a manager.

The Geordie kid started the season in blistering form, topping the Championship goalscoring table, but his form died off over Christmas.
