Stoke boss Hughes warns Swansea's Monk: Not always so easy

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes has warned Swansea City rival Garry Monk the only way is down after a winning debut.

Hughes, who was at Southampton with Monk, reckons the only way is down after such a brilliant debut.

The Potters host Swansea tonight and Hughes said: "Clearly Swansea wanted a new manager bounce and that is exactly what they got.

"The players seem to want him to do well. It is similar to the situation I found myself in when I got the Wales job.

"But it becomes more difficult the longer you are in the game - that would be my bit of advice."
