Captain Monk's Rallying Cry to Jack Army

Captain Monk's Rallying Cry to Jack Army

Garry Monk has said the Swansea City faithful can really make the difference between winning and losing come Sunday morning's showdown with rivals Cardiff.

The Swans have only lost on home turf once this season, and Monk believes a large part of that is down to the support the side receives from the terraces.

When speaking on Real Radio Monk called for more of the same.

'I don`t think anyone has to talk up how big this game is or how much it means.'

'The intensity you get in a derby game, especially this one, means we all get to know what the fans feel about it.'

'It`s definitely huge for the supporters. Before the last game it`s all the fans wanted to talk to you about, for months beforehand even though we had other games first.'

'That sort of feeling creates a great atmosphere and it will be the same again on Sunday, I`m sure.'

'The crowd played a huge part for us in the last game, but they have done all season.'

'I`m sure both sides could sense the intensity in the last match, but it was our backyard and there`s no way we want to lose on our own patch.'

'So, come Sunday we will have that same feeling. It`s a huge thing to have the fans right behind us, even if it`s appealing for decisions because all those little things can go with you and make the difference.'


The man Monk hopes Swans fans can influence is Premiership referee Martin Atkinson, who will be the man in the middle on Sunday.
