IT didn’t get any better for Wanderers last season than a five-star display at Elland Road.

A third successive victory put a 10-point gap between them and the bottom three.

And they did it in style, ripping through Leeds to score five goals away from home for the first time since they famously routed Leicester City on their return to the Premier League in 2001.

Joe Mason opened the scoring just before half time, with Lukas Jutkiewicz heading a second from Jay Spearing’s free kick just after the restart.

Zat Knight prodded in a third before Mark Davies scored the pick of the bunch, finishing a flowing move he had started on the edge of his own box.

Andre Moritz scored the fifth before Matt Smith plundered a late consolation for Brian McDermott’s men.
