Tony Pulis believes West Brom's confidence is improving

Swansea manager Garry Monk says he has no problems with Tony Pulis' style of play and admits he is prepared for the blocking tactics his side expect to face at West Brom tomorrow.

West Brom's set-pieces came under the microscope on Sunday when Chris Brunt and Brown Ideye scored in their 2-2 draw at Burnley, both goals coming from corners when home defenders were blocked off by Albion players.

"It is a concern if the referee doesn't see it but Tony doesn't hide how he sets them up," Monk said. "People might not agree with that way of playing but Tony's very effective and makes no bones about it."
