Cardiff manager Dave Jones watched his side bring Leicester's winning streak to an end and then declared that he saw it coming right from the kick-off.

The Bluebirds claimed a well-deserved 2-0 npower Championship victory to put the skids on their visitors' run of five wins on the spin. Michael Chopra's 10th goal of the season set them on their way in the first half before on-loan Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey wrapped up the points after the break.

"We deserved the win from the very first minute. It was all about squeezing the game and we stopped them from using their spare midfield man," said a delighted Jones.

"Once we scored the second goal we shut them out and every one of our players put in a good shift. They had a lot of the ball but couldn't do anything with it. "


He added: "We lost on Saturday against a form team but we were also a form team and we have put distance between us and a very good Leicester side.

"We deserved the victory because we passed the ball well on a difficult pitch, kept possession and stopped them from playing."

Leicester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson was left to rue the end of his side's nine-match unbeaten run.

"I'm disappointed that our good run has come to an end," he admitted.

"After Cardiff scored it was very difficult to break down a solid Cardiff defence.

"We created a couple of good chances in the second half but I am sure we will come back strongly from this defeat. It will be a long trip home but we will work hard again in training.

"Their goals were conceded far too easily. We didn't do too badly but not well enough to get anything out of the game. We have to pull ourselves together and look forward to the next game."
