De Vries Looking Forward To Burnley Challenge

De Vries Looking Forward To Burnley Challenge

Dorus De Vries says he's looking forward to the Burnley game at home on Saturday and admits it's a 'great challenge' for the team.

Swansea City will be looking to build on their 4-0 win at home to Preston a fortnight ago, but they face a much tougher test this weekend as Burnley are targeting a return to the Premier League this season.

De Vries told the Official Site:

'They're a great side and a team with individual quality,'

'They are one of the top favourites to go back up but we are at home and lookingforward to the game.

'We gained a lot of confidence after winning at Tranmere and we just have to trust in our own ability.

'It will be a great challenge and hopefully we will build on our last win at the Liberty against Preston.

'We want to make our home a fortress and make us hard to beat. If we play our stuff and have great belief in our ability we can do that.'

It'll be a tough game and I hope our defence is tighter than it was against Preston. Although we kept a clean sheet, against a side who could finish we could have conceded 2 or 3. If we play with the same intensity and quality though I'm confident we'll edge them and get a win.
