‘I feel sick for the players’ says Monk

Garry Monk said he felt sorry for his players after a late West Brom penalty denied us at least a point.

Having seen Wednesday match the league leaders for much of the game before going down 2-1, the Owls boss said: “I felt sick for the players, to come to the league leaders and play that well.

“The first half was quite even but in the second half we were the better team on the pitch, to create that amount of chances and not win the game … how we have not won that game, let alone not taken any points from it, it’s quite astounding.

“You can see everything in terms of performance is there but for the two main parts. Being ruthless and clinical, we had enough chances to totally kill that game, and then unfortunately we concede that poor goal at the end. That’s been three games in a row, we’ve talked about it, we’ve discussed it and we know we can’t continue in that way.”

Monk said so much of the game went exactly how he had planned it to be and added: “We’ll stick together, take it on the chin and work through it, and if we continue to perform like this then we have to believe that things will turn for us in terms of the results that we deserve.”
