Sheffield Wednesday’s Garry Monk:”We are a work in progress but we’re in a healthy position and we will work as hard as we can at the time that we have ahead of another game to give ourselves the best possible opportunity.
“A stage was at least we deserved from a match we thoroughly dominated [against Birmingham]. It is testament to the lads a lot of chances when I would say we were quite sloppy we created. But that is the quality we have in creating those chances yet and we are going to continue to work as hard as we can to make things turn.”

Charlton may be starting to worry a little. They are on a very bad run of shape and also have slipped to 17th in the Championship.
After Garry Monk’s press conference fireworks in midweek, he would have been happy to not drop to Birmingham. They have not won , and are currently falling the table down too, however. I cannot see them winning either, although I can not see them losing at Charlton.
