Garry Monk’s experience will help him deal with Sheffield Wednesday’s growing troubles, according to former Bristol City boss Lee Johnson.
The Owls are now nine points adrift of safety at the bottom of the Championship table after losing 3-0 to South Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United on Wednesday night.
It was Wednesday’s third consecutive loss and ensures they will enter November with a negative points tally.
The game was briefly suspended after only four minutes due to an unauthorised drone flying over the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
Soon after the action resumed, Jamie Lindsay headed Rotherham in front.
The visitors’ task was made even tougher when Tom Lees was sent off for pulling back Mickel Miller in the box.
Daniel Barlaser converted the resulting penalty and Lindsay then bagged his second of the evening to round off the scoring before half-time.
