Monk delighted by another win

Monk delighted by another win

Manager Garry Monk was understandably delighted by a second away victory in four days - this time a 3-1 triumph at Hull City.

Martin Braithwaite, Britt Assombalonga and Grant Leadbitter were each on target as the visitors successfully followed up their weekend triumph against Reading.

Substitute Kamil Grosicki replied for the home side while Michael Hector was sent-off.

"It doesn't get much better, in terms of performance levels, the points we took from it and the goals that we scored," Monk told BBC Sport. "The only negative was their goal but that was out of nothing and from their point of view it was a good finish.

"Both performances have deserved the three points, have deserved the goals," he added. "Hull have scored a lot of goals this season, so they were always going to be a threat, and I thought we really took care of them defensively very well and we looked a dangerous team on the attack as well."
