‘I’m sure the chances will start to go in’

Garry Monk believes we will turn our chances into more goals after another frustrating 90 minutes at Hillsborough on Wednesday evening.

Following a disappointing 1-1 home draw with his former club Birmingham, where we had 24 efforts on goal but only five on target, the Owls boss said: “We know we have to be much more ruthless, but at this moment it’s hitting the bar, off the line and we know these chances have to be put away. But we have a good group and they understand. There is a long way to go.

“Without being at our best, we dominated the chances but it doesn’t seem to want to go in at the moment. I’m sure it will turn. We’re doing great in terms of creating, we really pushed and should have won … it’s disappointment and frustration but we have belief.

“A little bit more composure is needed but also that bit of luck. That’s football and with the amount of chances we’re creating it will turn and fall for us.”

Monk also explained that Julian Borner was withdrawn at half time as he had received a fifth yellow card of the season in the first half, ruling him out of Saturday’s trip to Charlton, and the Owls boss was also concerned that he might get a second yellow in the second period, leading to a heavier punishment.
