Swansea City manager Garry Monk believes his side should have won at Aston Villa more comfortably after Bafetimbi Gomis netted an 87th winner at Villa Park.

Gomis had wasted big chances earlier in the game as the Swans dominated in the first half before Villa improved in the second.

When neither side could make the most of their best chances, it looked like the game was heading for a goalless draw, before substitute Jefferson Montero helped create the winner for the Frenchman.

Monk felt they deserved to win, while Tim Sherwood felt his side were worthy of a point. The Swans boss was pleased with his side’s character and desire to keep creating chances and eventually find the winning goal.

“Overall I think we deserved it,”

“In the first half we were fantastic. We played some really good football, we controlled it and we should have scored one or two goals.

“The second half was more even with both teams pushing and fighting. But considering we`re away from home with a big crowd and a confident Villa team, I thought we dealt with it very well.

“We could have scored two or three and won the game more comfortably.

“You wonder after the first half if it is going to come back to bite you, as happened against Liverpool.

“But our performance typified the character in the dressing room. People have been questioning what we have got to play for because we are safe from relegation and we`re too far away to qualify for Europe.

“But we showed our character and our desire. We kept fighting to get the points.”
