Rangel: Our Team Is Stronger Than Cardiff's

Angel Rangel says Swansea City have a stronger team than Cardiff City ahead of Sunday's South Wales derby match.

The Spaniard defender says the Championship leaders are a 'massive team' but is confident in the Swans squad and believes our passing-game will be key to getting a good result.

Rangel said:

'We know Cardiff are a very, very good team this season with great players,'

'Individually they are a massive team. Bothroyd is suspended this week, but they still have (Chris) Burke, Chopra, Whittingham and Bellamy.

'But as a team I think we are stronger than they are.

'They are trying to play football as we do, but we are more used to the ball than them and I think that's going to be a key thing.

'We have shown we are a good team in this division. We are climbing the table and, although we are away from home, I think we can win the game.'


Rangel admits that the Bluebirds will probably be favourites as they're at home, but more pressure will be on Cardiff and our recent away form will help us.

'They are at home so probably they will be the favourites,'

'But they will have more pressure on them than us because they are on their own ground, and we are very confident away from home at the moment.

'We will go there with a lot of motivation and great spirit and try to get three points.

'We have won our last three away games and we feel stronger than ever going into this game.'

'We will aim for another clean sheet,'

'We have had five in a row in the league and that's not easy.

'But it's not just the back four who are doing well — the whole team is defending really well.

'We have to keep doing exactly the same things against Cardiff.

'We know they have threats and it will be a very difficult game, but we feel we can win if we are at our best.'
