Sheffield Wednesday thrashed Cardiff City 5-0 in the Championship this afternoon.

Sheffield Wednesday could’ve fallen nine points adrift if they lost at home to Cardiff City today.

Wycombe Wanderers won earlier in the afternoon to shove Wednesday down into the bottom spot ahead of kick-off, with Coventry City picking up a vital win against Bristol City.

But Darren Moore’s side put on arguably their best attacking display of the season during the first-half, taking a 3-0 lead into half-time.

Julian Borner opened the scoring before Callum Paterson fired home from a fantastic Liam Palmer cross, with Adam Reach scoring an equally spectacular one from range to add a third on the 23-minute mark.

Second half goals from Jordan Rhodes and Reach again capped a memorable win for the Owls, and on the day, skipper Barry Bannan was everyone’s Man of the Match.

The 31-year-old was everywhere during the whole contested and looked as good as he ever has in a Wednesday shirt.
