Garry Monk says what he is delivering for Leeds United is "clearly" good enough, as he prepares his troops for Saturday's Championship clash against Cardiff City.

The 37-year-old, who landed at Leeds in the summer with just 77 games of managerial experience behind him from a stint at Swansea City, has already come under pressure due to the Whites' poor start to the campaign.

Monk's men did beat bottom of the Championship side Blackburn Rovers 2-1 on Tuesday night, but remain just 18th in the standings after losing four of their opening seven games to boast just seven points.

As such it has been suggested Monk is close to the sack. But the former Swansea boss feels he is on the right track and is delivering for Leeds.

"I only focus on whether what I am delivering is good enough – and I clearly think it is", he defiantly told a press conference this afternoon.


Monk also believes that speculation over his job at Leeds is simply par for the course, as he brushed it off.

"It's just football", he explained.

"Every manager has pressure and speculation on them if you lose a couple of games."

Leeds chairman Massimo Cellino, who recently took 100 per cent control of the club, has a reputation for quickly coming to a view about head coaches and pulling the trigger if he is not convinced.

Monk will hope to steer clear of the Italian's wrath by guiding Leeds to a comfortable victory in south Wales against Cardiff this Saturday.
