Shamrock Rovers

Garry Monk’s Verdict. The head coach reacts to Saturday’s 3-0 victory at Tallaght Stadium.

United boss Garry Monk says he saw clear signs of improvement in Saturday afternoon’s 3-0 pre-season friendly victory over Shamrock Rovers.

A brace from Marcus Antonsson and a Chris Wood penalty ensured Monk’s side ended their tour of Ireland with two wins from two, having seen off Shelbourne at Tolka Park three days earlier.

“It was definitely an improvement on Wednesday,” said Monk, reflecting on the convincing win at Tallaght Stadium.

“I had a good meeting with the players after Wednesday’s game and there were a lot of things that we needed to work on, but I saw a definite improvement today and that’s always good.
