Swansea manager Garry Monk believes the only way is up for Tim Sherwood as the two coaching course-mates prepare to cross tactical swords at Villa Park.

Swansea manager Garry Monk believes the only way is up for Tim Sherwood as the two coaching course-mates prepare to cross tactical swords at Villa Park.

Sherwood got his break in management at Tottenham first - a position he was unlucky to lose according to Monk - and the former England midfielder has revived Villa's fortunes with three successive wins taking them away from the Premier League danger zone and into the semi-final of the FA Cup.

"He's gone in there and lifted the confidence in the group," Monk said.

"You need results to do that but they've got very good players there who obviously weren't playing to their full potential before Tim took over. But he's had an instant impact."
