Sheffield Wednesday frontman Steven Fletcher has claimed that he is enjoying working under manager Garry Monk and praised the depth of the Owls boss’ approach.
Monk took charge of the Yorkshire club in September and has made a fantastic start to life at Hillsborough, leading them to six wins in his first 14 games and helping them climb into the top six.
Fletcher has been a key part of that success and a vital player for the Owls this season–top-scoring for Wednesday with 10 goals from 19 appearances.
The Scotsman appears to be enjoying life under Monk and, speaking to the Sheffield Star, has praised the depth of his approach.
He said: “It is really good (working under Monk).
“Everyone likes the way he is. He works on absolutely everything; things I would never have thought about working on. It has been really good and I am enjoying it.”
After a shaky patch saw the Owls go five games without a win, Monk’s men have now won two on the bounce and will be confident of picking up another against a Derby County side that have underwhelmed this season.
Wednesday look in a good place on the pitch, however, the EFL charge of misconduct against the club and owner Dephjon Chansiri is hanging over them at the moment and there have been suggestions that they may face a 21-point deduction.

Wednesday fans will surely love to hear how impressed Fletcher has been by Monk’s methods since he took charge of the club–and so far it appears to be working.
The Scotsman has been a key player so far and that looks set to continue as they push for the play-off qualification in the second half of the season.
His goals have been vital in the 2019/29 campaign, with the other three strikers, Atdhe Nuhiu, Sam Winnall, and Jordan Rhodes, having scored just three times in the league between them.
You wonder if the club may look to add some reinforcements in that department in January, though that may be dependent on the EFL charge, of course.
