Chopra: No regrets over booking

The former Sunderland hitman received his fifth yellow card of the season in the closing stages of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest and triggered an automatic one-match ban.

Despite the disappointment of missing the clash, Chopra insists he would not do anything any different if he had his time again.

The 25-year-old told Wales Online: "I've been criticised for the challenge, but the ball was there to be won. Maybe if it wasn't so wet I would have only slid two yards instead of five or 10. But I'm a player who will always go for a 50-50 ball.

"Some of my challenges earlier in the game could have earned me a booking. But you don't go into a game on four bookings and pull out of a tackle. It's a part and parcel of being a footballer."
