Two goals from Kenneth Zohore helped send Cardiff City top of the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday with a 3-1 victory against 10-man Leeds.

The visitors were in first place on goal difference heading into the match, but were outclassed by their Welsh opponents, with Zohore sweeping home the opener in the 28th minute.

Junior Hoilett powered home Cardiff’s second in the 37th minute with Leeds captain Liam Cooper sent off in first-half injury time for a second yellow card to cap a dismal first period for the visitors.

Zohore nabbed his second 13 minutes after the restart with a back post tap-in, but Leeds were able to muster a reply as Kemar Roofe’s strike was deflected home by the foot of Sean Morrison.
