We’ll come fighting back

20 January 2020

In the aftermath of Saturday’s heavy defeat at Hillsborough, Garry Monk has full belief that his side will come fighting back.

Wednesday fell way below their levels at the weekend on the back of two outstanding performances away from home in the victories over Brighton and Leeds.

But with an FA Cup fourth round tie away at QPR on Friday to prepare for, the players are back in at Middlewood Road and working to put things right in the capital.

“I have to keep balance, even when you feel the emotion in the moment, and understand that there is football to be played and work to be done,” Monk said.

“We have to get ready for that in this week coming.

“There is a lot of work to be done and everyone knows that and it’s my job to work through it, all the ups and downs and things that come my way and put us on a course.

“Quite rightly so, the anger and all the other emotions that go with it will come our way and of course, the criticism, because we deserve that.

“We have to see through all of that and work our way through it.

“We know what we are capable of, we’ve shown what we can do. The main thing is to not self-inflict and that is something that needs work.

“One thing we will do is stick together and I’ll tell you that for sure. We will stick together.

“It doesn’t feel like it now but we are in a good position, we will take the criticism on the chin and come fighting back.

“I’ve got full belief that’s what we’ll do.”
