Garry Monk: Left frustrated by defeat to Norwich

Swansea boss Garry Monk felt his side were unfortunate to lose 1-0 at Norwich – and admits the result leaves them with “work to do”.

Swansea went into the match with just one win in their last eight games and having won just one of their last 15 away trips to Carrow Road in all competitions.

But despite being in control for long periods at Carrow Road, a Jonny Howson strike earned the hosts a barely-deserved 1-0 win.

After the match, a frustrated Monk told the BBC: “We had total control up until the goal. It’s frustrating, very frustrating at the moment. One lapse of concentration has cost us dearly again and it’s been the story of the last couple of weeks, which is very frustrating for everyone.

“We got caught with a sucker punch against the run of play. There are not many teams who will come to Carrow Road and have almost total control of the game, doing just what we wanted.

“We have work to do now. We have to look and assess where we are over the break, and come back with the right approach and start to pick things up.”
