We had chances - Monk

We had chances - Monk

Manager Garry Monk was disappointed with a losing start to the season after a 1-0 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

On loan Brazilian striker Leo Bonatini scored the only goal following a misplaced pass by Daniel Ayala before the break, but the former Leeds United chief reckons his charges should certainly have taken something from the game.

"In the first half Wolves were the better team and we made too many mistakes and obviously one of them led to a goal," Monk told BBC Sport. "But I thought we were the better team in the second half and we upped our level of urgency. We need that at the start of games.

"We had the best chances in the game and on any other day we could have taken one or two of them," he added. "That is football and is sometimes the way that it works out."
