Monk: We Should Have Won Comfortably

Monk: We Should Have Won Comfortably

Skipper Garry Monk says the Swans should have won Saturday's match comfortably against Fulham in the FA Cup 5th round.

Martinez's side dominated the game but failed to put their chances away, which means they'll have to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage if they want to face Manchester United at home in the quarter-finals.

It's a huge incentive and reward for us to go there and beat the Cottagers as it's not every year you get the chance to host the Premier League title holders and one of the best sides in the world.

Monk conceded a very unlucky own goal from a corner, and he told the Evening Post:

'There were a lot of bodies at the far post and Dorus came out to punch it but it hit me on the hip and went in.

'What could I do? Nine times out of 10 it would drop straight down and I would clear it.

'We were dominating at the time as well. It was a massive sucker punch.

'We showed the character we have got. It was a good goal by Jase (Scotland) and with the chances we had we should have won the game quite comfortably.

'With the possession and territory we managed to get, then we look at it as a chance lost.'

We should have won/scored 3 goals and his own goal was very unlucky, there's nothing he could do as he couldn't have seen the ball coming or reacted. De Vries' fault really for not claiming the ball, just a shame we didn't go into a 2-goal lead prior to that.

gower needs a goal to give him some confidence, he is a great player and once he gets his first goal he will be happy and will be able to score a few more.. monk was really unlucky but thats football we have to put that behind us and take the game to fulham in craven cottage and get the deserved home tie against the champions of the world.
