'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Derby Games Are What You Live For, Says De Vries

Swansea's regular stopper Dorus de Vries has spoken of how he thinks he deserves his place in the starting line up against Cardiff on Sunday.

The Dutchman returned to action on Tuesday night after a broken cheekbone kept him sidelined for five weeks, and despite a couple of shaky moments, was impressive between the sticks.

And de Vries thinks he has proved himself worthy of starting ahead of loan signing Dimi Konstantopoulos.

He told the Evening Post:

'I hope I have done enough in the 75 or so games I have played for Swansea to keep my place for the Cardiff game.'

'I think I showed that I was one of the most consistent and regular keepers in League One last season and I think I've done the same in the Championship.'

'I am critical about myself and my performances and I know I have still got a lot of growth in me.'

'But I think I have done well enough in my time here. I am really positive and I am looking forward to the next game.'


Speaking specifically about the Bluebird's visit to the Liberty de Vries added:

'I have got some great memories of the Carling Cup game.'

'It was the kind of atmosphere you don't even imagine in your dreams, and I can still hear the crowd singing now.'

'These are the games you train for, you live for, and hopefully we can make it two out of two.'
