Anyone for some pre-match reading on on Reading?

“Football can turn quickly” – that’s the message of Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk, who has called on his side to make this afternoon’s clash with Reading a watershed moment in their season.

The 40-year-old Owls boss has seen his side collect just five points from their last 27 available and with 14 games left are quickly slipping out of play-off contention.

But Monk believes the visit of Reading, themselves winless in the league since New Year’s Day, offers as good a chance as any at turning their fortunes around. And he hopes one performance – as well as hard work – that can spark that u-turn.
