Monk Looks Forward To Portsmouth Tie

Garry Monk was immediately looking forward to the Portsmouth tie after his side beat Histon last night
The Swansea City captain will lead his team out at Fratton Park on 24th January after they finally overcame their non league opponents last night.
Goals from Gorka Pintado and Guillem Bauza gave the Swans the victory they wanted and they could even afford the 'luxury' of a missed penalty shortly before Histon pulled a goal back.
And the reward for that victory is a trip to the home of the cup holders a week on Saturday, a tie that Monk - a former Southampton player - is looking forward to
"You want as many home draws as you can but if you're going to play away you want to do it at a Premiership side," he told the official site.
"It'll be a great experience for the boys, we're just like everybody else wanting to play against a big side and we're all certainly looking forward to that."
