De Vries: Break Couldn't Come At A Better Time

De Vries: Break Couldn't Come At A Better Time

Goalkeeper Dorus De Vries says their 2-week break couldn't come at a better time.

Swansea City have struggled lately, winning just 1 game in the last 7 which has seen fall 5 points adrift of the top 6 with 6 games to play.

The squad has 2 weeks to recover and prepare for our massive game at Ninian Park on Sunday 5th April against our rivals Cardiff City.

They suffered a 3-0 home defeat yesterday and will be without Gabor Gyepes and Ross McCormack who got sent off during the game against Sheffield United.

De Vries told the Evening Post:

''We can't let our concentration slip,''

''If you lose on the Saturday then you have negative energy you want to get rid of. But when you have a game on Tuesday you haven't got much time to get rid of it because you are thinking about a different game.

''There are times as a footballer that you want to play as many games as you can, but sometimes you need that Saturday-to- Saturday feeling back.'

'It gives you time to think about games and prepare mentally and tactically.

It has been an intense period. I think it has come at the right time, it is a welcome break.'


Saturday's draw at Hillsborough was our 19th of the season and sets a new record for the club.
