Kenwyne Jones and Bruno Ecuele Manga celebrated as Cardiff won their third game in four under Russell Slade.

Cardiff City's superb form continues under Russell Slade.

The new Cardiff boss has now won three of his first four games in charge of the Bluebirds after a 3-1 triumph over Leeds.

Goals from Kenwyne Jones, Bruno Ecuele Manga and Frederico Macheda secured victory for Cardiff and kept them 11th in the table.

Jones, who scored his side's third goal, referred to a family tragedy during his celebration and has reportedly flown home to Trinidad & Tobago to be with his relatives.

"It was a bit of a non-event of a first half in many ways, with not much in it and not too many chances. I don't think anyone expected that in the second half: four goals and an entertaining game," Slade told BBC Sport after the game.

"They (Leeds) are very unpredictable in the way they play. They've got some talented players, so it was important for us to be compact and keep our discipline."

For Leeds United, however, it is now seven Championship games without a win. New boss Neil Redfearn has only just taken full charge of Yorkshire side, though, and improvement should come under the 49-year-old if his previous stint as caretaker charge is anything to go by.

Owner Massimo Cellino was in the stands looking on - but no smiles would have been forthcoming from the Italian on this occasion.
