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.
