Vaughany’s a happy man
Monk on Julian Borner’s absence and Joost van Aken
He rang in ill yesterday morning. I am going to try and give everyone an opportunity and Joost has come back in. I was delighted for him today. It’s up to the players when they have a chance to prove a point. I have given players an opportunity in pre-season.
Monk ‘delighted’ after goalscoring return for Jordan Rhodes
I am delighted for Jordan. Hopefully that will give him great confidence. We are not fully match sharp yet. There was a bit of a rustiness there but that’s where the mentality takes over. There were really good signs.
Monk on victory
We were excellent today. We knew what to expect. The organisation was great. We are pleased to get off to a winning start.
