Rangel: We Go To Reading Full Of Confidence

Angel Rangel says the Swans will go to Reading on Saturday full of confidence after ending their losing away run at Watford nearly 3 weeks ago.

Brendan Rodgers returns to his previous club this weekend and is boosted with the returns of Darren Pratley, Scott Sinclair and Stephen Dobbie.

Our losing run away from home came to an end thanks to a 3-2 win against Rodgers' former club Watford, and the Swans boss will be looking to beat another of his previous club's tomorrow when we face Reading at the Madesjki Stadium.

Rangel believes the team will go into the game with extra motivation:

'After picking up our first away win of the season at Watford recently, we will go to Reading full of confidence,''

'That victory meant a lot to the team, especially as it was against the gaffer's (Brendan Rodgers) old club.

'It will be the same at Reading. We will have extra motivation because I'm sure the gaffer will want to go back to Reading and beat his former club, while the three points will also set us up nicely for two home games next week.

'It's going to be difficult because Reading are a good side. But if we are at our best, we'll have a great chance of coming away with all three points.

'With the international break over, we've got a busy period ahead of us up until Christmas. With so many games, I think that period is going to be very important with regards to where we finish the campaign.

'But having been in the Championship now for three seasons, the squad has gained a lot of experience at this level.

'We've also added some quality signings and got cover for every position, which is important with so many games coming up.

'I think this season will be a special one. I'm sure this is the one.''


Rangel celebrated the birth of his first son this week and he says it'll put an even bigger smile on his face during tomorrow's game:

'I was a bit surprised to go straight back in,''

'But I enjoyed it and tried to get forward as much as I could.

'The manager showed a lot of faith in me that day and I want to repay him by giving my best every week for him, the team and the supporters.

'I always try and give 100 per cent and play with a smile on my face. But with my 'little Angel' being born this week, I'll be playing at Reading with an even bigger grin.''

With partner Nikki giving birth at Singleton Hospital on Monday to a healthy 7lb 13oz baby boy, the chant of only one Angel Rangel is now obsolete after he was named Angel Noah Rangel.

'He has the same name as me because in my family we have had seven generations of Angel Rangels,' he explained. 'I did not want to break the tradition.

'He is the eighth Angel Rangel, but we'll be calling him Little Angel around the house to avoid any confusion.''
