  • That's all for the live commentary from Hillsborough. No doubt there will be plenty of celebrations in Sheffield this evening. Keep an eye out for a full match report and reaction from the game shortly.Thanks for joining us and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  • Keiran Lee is given the Sky Bet Man of the Match award following an instrumental performance in midfield. The result moves Wednesday up to 19th and four points clear of the bottom three ahead of this afternoon's fixtures. Leeds are down to ninth.

  • Lee Probert signals for full-time and brings an end to an utterly miserable afternoon for Leeds United. Wednesday were rampant throughout and Stuart Gray has given himself the best chance possible of landing the job permanently. 6-0.

  • GOAL! It's six for Wednesday and a second for Caolan Lavery who breaks free of Zaliukas before firing past Kenny and into the bottom corner. The hosts are in dreamland. 6-0.

  • Wednesday almost make it six as Wickham cuts inside of Zaliukas before a superb flying block from Pearce deflects it over the bar and behind for a corner.

  • McCormack fires well over from a wide angle. It was out of frustration more than anything else from the Leeds striker.

  • Leeds fans will have to endure another four minutes of this as that is what the fourth official has added on.

  • Byram is flagged for offside as Leeds look for a consolation goal. It's hard to see the visitors doing so as Kirkland has been untested all afternoon.

  • Surely Stuart Gray has to get the job on a permanent basis after this showing?

  • Only the woodwork is denying Wednesday from making it six. Wickham does well down the left, he sits a cross up for the onrushing Johnson who lashes his effort against the post with Kenny rooted to the spot.

  • Zaliukas turns Johnson's cross behind for a corner. It's played short and Johnson can go again, he puts a ball across goal but Kenny does well to palm away and Leeds can clear.

  • Kirkland collects the ball as McCormack chases in the area. It's been a quiet and frustrating afternoon for the Championship's leading goalscorer.

  • The hosts make their final change of the game as Maguire is replaced by Jeremy Helan.

  • It was another goal on the break for Wednesday - Zaliukas over-committed himself on the half-way line allowing Lavery to run at the Leeds defence and he just kept on going and going. A few step overs took him away from Pugh before he slotted past the flat-footed Kenny.

  • GOAL! Wednesday make it five as Caolan Lavery nets his first goal for the club with a smart finish. 5-0.

  • Lee trips Zaliukas inside the Wednesday half and Leeds are given a free-kick which Peltier will pump into the area.

  • The hosts aren't settling for just the four though, they continue attack and Byram gets in ahead of Johnson to poke to ball out of play as he looked to cross.

  • Wednesday are playing the game at walking pace now and Kenny comes off his line to smother Maguire's through-ball with Wickham lingering with intent.

  • Wickham drags his shot wide after the ball found him at the back-post. He just can't quite connect properly and it rolls behind.

  • Wednesday may be 4-0 in one of their biggest games of the season, but the Leeds fans have not stopped singing all afternoon. 'Marching on Together' echoes round Hillsborough.
