Monk’s praise for Owls squad

18 December 2019

Three wins from four and unbeaten in five.

It’s been a very positive few weeks for Garry Monk’s men in the Championship.

Three consecutive Saturdays have yielded maximum points for the Owls with victories over Charlton, Brentford and Nottingham Forest.

But prior to the impressive win at The Valley in late November, Wednesday went on a five-game winless run and even then, Monk says confidence never waned in the camp.

The Owls are up to fifth in the Championship after the weekend romp over Forest at the City Ground.


“It should always give them confidence,” Monk said. “But I said all along, even in that period where we were playing well enough to win and weren’t getting the results, I haven’t seen any confidence lost.

“I work with them every day and they work hard and they understand when they perform at a high level they can beat anyone in this league.

“We haven’t lost any confidence and it was about delivering the performances at a high level and that’s what we have been doing.

“It’s important we use the recovery time right because the game is on Sunday, it’s five games in 14 days but we’ve just shown what we can do in a three-game week and we need to be ready to do that again.”
