It's been a positive week

7 November 2020

After a dramatic week yielding 10 points and a move off the foot of the Championship, Garry Monk said the only thing missing was a win against Millwall on Saturday.

Wednesday posted a 0-0 draw with the Lions despite being the better side and creating the better chances.

And Monk said: “We set out what we intended to do and that was to put them under pressure and we could have scored in the first couple of minutes.


“We’ve gone on to dominate the game, Joe hasn’t had a save to make, and the only thing missing was a goal.

“How we haven’t hit the back of the net I will never know. Their goalkeeper has had a great game so credit to him. But on another day we win that game and we win it comfortably.”

Overall, though, Monk reflected on a positive week at Hillsborough, adding:

“We’ve had a 10-point week, two clean sheets, a win and a draw and we’re off the bottom of the division so that has to been seen as a real positive.


“I feel sorry for the players in that changing room, though, they have given absolutely everything today and deserved a win.

“But it will come, it will turn, it might take a lucky goal, a scruffy goal or something like that and we have to keep that belief.”
