Monk: A Poor Performance & We Must Improve

Garry Monk said Saturday's performance in the defeat at Sheffield United was 'poor' and 'not good enough' after our 6-match unbeaten away run came to an end at Bramall Lane.

Ched Evans' 44th minute goal was enough to give the Blades 3 much-needed points as they look to pull away from the drop-zone.

Monk said Saturday's performance was nowhere near good enough if we want to consolidate our strong position for the remainder of the season:

'It was a poor performance from us this weekend, and we've all got to step up to the plate because it simply wasn't good enough.

'Forget about talking about going second, third or the play-offs, you've got to get the performance right first. We've got to get back to the standards we've set.

'In the past couple of games our performances haven't been where they should be. We have to step up and raise ourselves for a massive match at QPR.'

We controlled the first half without really creating much,'

'To be done by a poor goal, a long ball through the middle, is bitterly disappointing.

'We were probably too comfortable on the ball and we lost concentration when we lost the ball.

'Everyone has to do their jobs and concentrate for 90 minutes.

'We've set such high standards and when we dip below them everyone is disappointed.

'Some people will say that we have done well so far to be in fourth place, but we always want more as players, management and a club.

'Why should we settle for what we've got? We want more.'


Monk remains upbeat that the team can bounce back from a recent run of some disappointing results - particularly at home.

'There's no crisis, no problems. We've just got to forget everything else and get back to basics and what we are good at.

'We've got great characters and players in the dressing room.

'Yes, we are disappointed with Saturday, but we've got a great squad with plenty of quality and we'll bounce back. What better place to do it than at the home of the leaders?'
