It was two just before half time when McQueen turned provider, crossing for Calum Chambers to head in at the near post.

Ronald Koeman changed the entire XI at half time and the second lineup did as well as the first by also scoring twice in 45 minutes.

Billy Sharp converted the third from the penalty spot in the 62nd minute after Steven Davis was brought down, before Davis himself made it four just two minutes later.
