Monk: Make us feel proud again

30th December 2014

Garry Monk will be looking for an instant reaction from his Swans side as they aim to kick off the new year on a winning note at Queens Park Rangers.
The Swans' final fixture of 2014 ended in a disappointing manner as they went down 4-1 to Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.
Now Monk's side focus on the trip to Loftus Road, where QPR have picked up all of their 18 points so far this term.
And the Swans boss insists he wants a positive reaction to the defeat on Merseyside.

"We have to react from last night's result. The players have to put in a performance to make us all feel proud again," said Monk, who guided his team to a 2-0 win over QPR earlier this month.
"It will be a different game there. They are very strong at home and it's a tight pitch.
"We are working on identifying strengths along with looking at where we can improve on."
The trip to London will be the final involvement for Ki Sung-Yueng and Wilfried Bony before they join up with South Korea and the Ivory Coast for their involvement in the Asian Cup and African Cup of Nations tournaments.
The Swans are also set to be without winger Jefferson Montero for a month after the Ecuadorian suffered a hamstring strain.
And with the transfer window set to open in January, Monk admitted he will be looking at the possibility of adding to the recent acquisition of loan signing Nelson Oliveira.
"There are a number of players we will be looking at," he added. "We are losing good players in January through the internationals while Jeff has been fantastic and has brought a new dimension to our game.
"I'll have a meeting with the chairman to see what we can do to add quality to this squad."
