Fletcher is loving life under Monk, hitting seven of his 10 Championship goals since Monk's appointment in early-September.

Monk has recorded six victories from his 14 matches in charge, overseeing just three defeats.

Fletcher, who is expected to lead the line when the Owls head to Derby County on Wednesday evening, told The Star: "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."

Seven points from the last nine on offer has raised spirits at Hillsborough following a turbulent period off the pitch. Monk's men climbed into the play-off places after back-to-back victories over Charlton Athletic and Brentford.

Leading marksman Fletcher said: "It is nice to get back-to-back wins. It is always good when you get a win, to have another game coming so fast. We have momentum and another game on Wednesday, which is good."

The Rams, managed by former Holland international Phil Cocu, are on an eight-match unbeaten home run. Their last defeat at Pride Park came in August against Bristol City.

"Derby will be a tough one, but we are looking forward to it," insisted Fletcher. "It’s a tough place to go, but we are one a good run just now.

"We have got a great manager behind us. All the boys are pulling in the right direction."
