‘We just lacked killer instinct … I’m still man for job’

Garry Monk believes it was only the lack of a “killer edge” in front of goal that prevented us from taking any points at Wycombe today.

The 1-0 defeat leaves us 10 points from safety and rooted at the foot of the Championship table but, after a fourth succesive league defeat, Monk also said he still believes he is the right man for the job.

Speaking after the Wycombe game, Monk said: “I thought it was a much better performance than the last two – the lads ran their hearts out today.

“We competed, which we knew we had to do on the defensive side of things. We are just missing that killer edge, we dominated the game, got ourselves into posiitons that we had planned to do but just at the moment we can’t find that killer edge.

“It is just not going for us at this moment in time but I thought the team gave everything today.”

When asked if he felt he was still the man for the job, Monk said: “Of course I do. I have got the belief in myself, I know what I can do, I know what I do and deliver on an everyday basis and that’s why I believe, of course, I can help this club get out of the current situation.”

Monk also talked of a lack of confidence in the squad after such a poor run of results but added: “There is a big spirit here amongst the players and that will help them through this. I have no doubt they can get us out of this and that these players are good enough to do this.”
