Blackburn Rovers thumped Sheffield Wednesday 5-0 on Saturday afternoon at Hillsborough.
Sitting mid-table in the Championship, Rovers knew that the visit to Wednesday would prove a tricky tie, but that seemingly changed when Massimo Luongo was sent off in the first half.
That incident for the home side only rubbed salt in to their wounds after Lewis Holtby opened the scoring for the visitors in the 19th minute.
That lead was then doubled for Blackburn when Cameron Dawson put the ball in to his own net and the first half looked all-but done, however, Holtby grabbed a second of his own in first half stoppage time.
The second half opened with another goal from the visitors as Darragh Lenihan struck and that would prove another nail in the coffin for Wednesday as they saw their play-off hopes take a knock.
Sam Gallagher added a fifth late on and the win for Blackburn sees them move up to 11th in the Championship table.
Following the game, countless Rovers fans took to Twitter to share their feelings after what was an excellent result for Tony Mowbray’s side.
