A lot of work ahead

17 September 2019

New Owls boss Garry Monk was delighted with his maiden win in the Wednesday dugout on Sunday but insists there is a lot of work ahead.

The Owls’ 2-0 win over Huddersfield in West Yorkshire was well deserved and a welcomed start for Monk.

But the former Owls loanee acknowledges that, although pleased with the performance and result, there is plenty of room for improvement.

“That’s what we are going to focus on,” Monk said.

“It’s not about me, it’s about this squad, these players and they came close a few seasons ago.

“I want to help them get back to the levels they’ve been at before and achieve something good.

“Unfortunately, we will face teams every week that think the same!


“There will be ups and downs, we will not be going over the top because we have won one game, there is a lot of work ahead of us.

“There are really good things that they have done so far but I can see a lot of improvements that need to be done as well.”

On the positives from Sunday’s victory over the Terriers that saw Steven Fletcher bag his fourth goal of the campaign and Sam Winnall open his account for 2019/20, Monk added:

“The most pleasing thing on Sunday was to see the team attitude towards a difficult game.

“The intensity and attitude shone through more than anything.

“Defensively we were very sound, offensively we created some chances but both sides we need to get better at and that will take time and work on the training ground.”
