Rangel: 'Every Point Is Like Gold'

Full back Angel Rangel says every point is like gold now as we have just 11 games remaining to pick up the points required to reach the play-offs.

The Swans have now drawn their last 2 games and the pressure is on us now to get 3 points away at Nottingham Forest on the weekend.

Angel Rangel started out comeback on Tuesday, scoring from Gomez's cross before Pintado grabbed a late equaliser to finish the game at 2-2.

The point could prove to be vital for us as there's a lot of competition for the play-off places, with Preston, Burnley and Bristol City being our main rivals for a top 6 finish.

Angel Rangel told the Evening Post:

'We now have 11 games to play and every point now is like gold,'

'We have five at home and six away, so if we can win the five games at home and a few points away from home then we can dream of the play-offs.

'The next few games are against teams that are lower than us in the table. The likes of Birmingham and Cardiff are playing against top teams and that is going to be tough for them.'


There is some doubt over Rangel's goal as the Spaniard might not claim it. He fired the ball in from inside the box, it was saved by the keeper but it went in-off of Steve Davies (my attempts at a snooker pun!)

Rangel believes it was his goal - his first since December 15th 2007. The full back added:

'It was my goal,'

'I shot and the keeper touched it, but if he hadn't then it was a goal.

'The goal wasn't the best of the season, but it was important to get the team back into the game.'
