Ex-Bluebird Steve Thompson broke Cardiff City hearts on Tuesday night as his late headed goal got Burnley a draw at Ninian Park. City dropped 2 points but remained in 2nd spot.

However what is it about Thommo and this fixture?

Since joining Cardiff in January 2006, Steve Thompson has just 30 league goals in 160 league games for The Bluebirds and The Clarets - an average of 1 goal every 5.2 starts.

So how come he's managed to score 5 goals in 6 Cardiff v Burnley games? (3 for City in 4 games and 2 in 2 for Burnley)

Worryingly, Burnley away is last game of the season ... let's hope he's injured or suspended!
