Garry Monk: Swansea City can have no complaints after Birmingham upset
GARRY Monk has admitted Swansea City got what they deserved after they bowed out of the Capital One Cup at Birmingham last night.
Michael Laudrup's men missed a string of first-half chances at St Andrew's and paid a heavy price as Birmingham stormed into the game after the break.
Goals from Dan Burn, Matt Green and Tom Adeyemi ensured Swansea's defence of the trophy came to an end in the third round, with Wilfried Bony's late header offering Michael Laudrup's men no consolation.

And Monk, who made his first appearance of the season at Birmingham, conceded: "We got what we deserved in the second half.
"In the first half we should have scored a few goals and it would have been a different game then, but we didn't when we definitely should have had one or two and ifs and buts don't count.
"In the second half they were the better team, we made some silly mistakes and got punished.
"It must have looked from the side of the pitch as if their first goal affected us, although it didn't really.
"The story of the game was that they took the chances they had and we didn't.
"We didn't deserve it from the second half so what can you say?"
