"I think when you look at it, at the start of every season there are 15 or so teams where that's the ambition [getting to the Premier League]. You can’t get away from that,” Monk said.

"The process has to be, as we've discussed as big clubs do, improvement day-by-day. Take each day and try to improve the squad we have in terms of what we do on the pitch and daily training.

"We know it's a capable squad but there are a lot of capable squads in this league. It's about making sure we compete as high as we can, the quality comes through and we take it step-by-step."
