Sheffield Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Swansea last weekend will have left Garry Monk disappointed after his side took the lead with just a few minutes remaining, only to concede a late equaliser in the last minute of injury time.
The result leaves Monk’s side without a win in their last three matches and they have only picked up two points from a possible 9 in this run, leaving Wednesday in 8th position and three points from 6th placed Bristol City going into the international break.
However, Sheffield Wednesday have generally been much improved since Monk took over in September but he will be disappointed with dropping points recently and will look to improve this when his side face West Brom next weekend.
Monk will certainly be reflecting on his start to life as the Owls manager and may consider making changes for the next fixture.
Here are two hot and two nots for Sheffield Wednesday this season.
Hot – Steven Fletcher
Experienced centre forward Steven Fletcher made an excellent start to the season scoring five league goals and making one assist.
Despite the majority of his goals coming earlier in the season, Fletcher has still managed to put in a number of good performances for Wednesday recently by holding up the ball well and winning flick ons to bring his team mates into play.
He will be looking to add to his goal tally in the coming weeks and it’s clear that Monk favours Fletcher’s style of play having started him in every league so far.
Hot – Morgan Fox
What a turnaround Fox is having at Hillsborough.
The left-back would be the first to admit that things didn’t go as well as he would’ve liked when he first arrived, but he’s finally showing what he’s capable of.
A Player of the Month award has gone his way, as well as a goal in the recent draw with Swansea City.
Not – Sam Winnall
Despite making a number of substitute appearances earlier in the season and scoring in the 2-0 win over Huddersfield in September, Winnall seems to be struggling at Blackburn and hasn’t featured since October 1st.
Jordan Rhodes seems to be the preferred attacking substitute for Monk at present, leaving Winnall with a difficult job to do in order to earn his place back at Wednesday.
Not – Away form
Sheffield Wednesday have not picked up a win on the road since their 4-1 victory over Middlesbrough on 28th September.
Since then, Monk’s side have only earned one point from a possible nine in their last three away fixtures, conceding four goals in the process which will surely be a concern for Monk going into the international break.
