Monk prepared players for derby with Swansea doco

Swansea City boss Garry Monk prepared his players for their derby win over Cardiff City by reminding them of the club's history.

Monk sent his players home with a documentary about the club's history.

"We had a bit of homework," Ashley Williams said. "I watched it and it helped me. I have been here for six years and I found out some stuff I didn't know and it helps you respect the place a bit more.

"Garry knows the club - he is someone who has been involved for so long and for myself and Leon (Britton), we have built it up. We feel like we have built it to a level and we do not want to see it go so quickly. It is our fault. If we pulled our socks up we could get ourselves out of it."
