Forgotten-man Matty Collins is hoping for a starting place tomorrow as Swansea City kick off their new season in the Championship away at Charlton Athletic.
The former Fulham youngster failed to even make a substitutes appearance last season and had to be content with a regular spot in the Reserves.
With that in mind it'll be a big step forward for him to start tomorrow. He's featured regularly in the pre-season friendlies, playing at right in place of injured Angel Rangel.
He'll be competing with Alan Tate and Alberto Serran for the full back spot tomorrow. Collins told the Evening Post:
|'The manager hasn't really given anything away about what the side's going to be, but hopefully I might be involved,' |
'I've worked hard over the summer to give myself a chance and I've been pleased with the way pre-season has gone. It would mean a lot if I was part of the side at Charlton.
'Last season was frustrating for me because like everyone else I wanted to play. But I've seen other players in that position spit their dummy out.
'They haven't shown the right attitude and they've been tossed aside as a result.
'But I got my head down and worked hard and I feel like I'm starting to reap the benefits now.'
|'The manager says he sees me as a right-back now,'|
'I played there a few times for Fulham so I knew the basics of the position, but the manager has helped me a lot with the defensive details.
'Things are starting to come naturally to me now and I'm enjoying being a right-back.
'Angel did fantastically there last season and Tatey is a very good player, but the competition benefits everyone.
'I feel like I'm improving every day and I'm confident I can do well for Swansea in the Championship.'
|Who should get the nod for the right back place tomorrow?|
