Serran Looking To Earn Regular First Team Place

Serran Looking To Earn Regular First Team Place

Albert Serran says he's looking to earn himself a regular place in the side when he's given his first start of the season on Saturday.

The Spaniard has been sidelined for the start of the season with an injury but he's expected to play his first game at Peterborough on the weekend as both Garry Monk and Alan Tate are unavailable.

The former Espanyol defender is also looking to follow in the footsteps of left back Fede Bessone. The Argentinian seems to be improving all the time, and since Monk has been out with a calf injury, Bessone has been the first choice left back with Tate moving to the centre.

With his solid performances recently, Paulo Sousa will have some tough decisions to make when he has both Alan Tate and Garry Monk to choose from.

Albert Serran told the Evening Post:

'Fede is very happy to be playing and he has a lot of confidence when he goes onto the pitch,'

'What he has done is the way to go and I am looking to do the same.

'You want to play and then you want to keep your place in the team, and that's what I will try to do.'

'I hope to play because you always want to play,'

'I got injured at the start of the season, but I have played a few reserve games and now I feel fit and ready.

'Last season I had to wait a long time to get into the team, but maybe this year I will get my chance a little earlier.

'I need to play. I need to feel confidence on the pitch and the way you get that is by playing with the first team.

'But I've got good feelings in my body and I'll be looking forward to Peterborough if I get picked.'

This is his chance to show what hes got. IMO he plays better at right back.

I just want to see the Swans break though and get some much needed goals. If it comes from Serran, Trundle or whoever but all players need to step up and show us they want to play for Swansea.
