Cardiff star back in Top 10

Michael Chopra has regained his place in the top 10 players in the Championship courtesy of his match-winning performance last Saturday in the 2-1 victory over Wolves.

After an outstanding start to the season, Chopra had faded of late and had scored just 1 goal in two months until the weekend when he scored with a delighful chip and set up fellow striker Jason Byrne for the winner. Chopra also hit a post and looked sharp again putting in a typically energetic performance that gave the new centre-back pairing of Collins and Fleming for Wolves a tough time.

Chopra now moves up to be the 7th highest ranked player in the Championship according to the Actim statistics. The 500k summer signing is the 5th highest ranked striker and has 13 league goals to his name this season. Birmingham's Gary McSheffrey is currently the highest ranked player by a long way also scoring 13 goals but weighing in with numerous assists.

Cardiff's Riccardo Scimeca is still the highest ranked midfielder while Joe Ledley and ex-Bluebird Jason Koumas also make the top 5.

Hopefully Chopra can build on his revival with another goal in another Cardiff win this weekend against Leicester City.
