Cardiff City moved to the top of the Championship last night, taking full advantage of previous leaders Brighton's draw at home to Ipswich Town with a 2-1 win over Birmingham City.
Craig Bellamy gave Cardiff the lead eight minutes before half-time but Leroy Lita, on loan from Swansea, brought the visitors level before a close-range Mark Hudson finish took Malky Mackay's team to the top.
Brighton were looking at a second consecutive defeat at the Amex Stadium, losing 1-0 to struggling Ipswich before Will Buckley rescued a point with 10 minutes to go.
Leicester City are up to second in the table, the France Under-21 midfielder Anthony Knockaert scoring both their goals in a 2-0 win at Huddersfield, the first a cracker from 30 yards. That did not stop rumours circulating that Leicester are willing to sack manager Nigel Pearson and replace him with Harry Redknapp.
