Garry Monk says the only route out of the Owls’ current slump is for everyone in the camp to show the character and fight required.
Wednesday went down 3-0 at home to Reading to extend their recent run of poor results and Monk insists he will keep his head above the parapet and hope to end the cycle.
He said: “We have to fight our way out of this, it’s the only way. We have to stick together and I thought the fans were fantastic today in sticking with the players and I said that to them after the game.
“The results aren’t good enough and they have every right to say what they wish but even though what they saw today wasn’t the level required, they stayed with the players.
“We know we are in a slump and we need strong character to come out the other side. Can we do it? Yes. Are the players capable of doing it? Yes. We need a win, something to get us back on track.
“I’ve been in football a long time, I’ve been a manager a long time and this run is right up there but we can get out with hard work, strong character, belief and fight.”
