Rangel Calls For Fans Support vs Forest

Rangel Calls For Fans Support vs Forest

Angel Rangel is calling for out for the fans to back the team on Saturday as we face a tough game against Nottingham Forest at the Liberty Stadium.

The Spanish right back said Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Derby County wasn't that bad, as the Swans fought back in the second half but it was too little too late after conceding two very soft goals.

The first was a forgettable one for Ashley Williams. Derby's pressure forced the centre back into a rare mistake, passing back to de Vries when he wasn't in goal.

The second was something that Rodgers has been looking to get rid of in his team - conceding from set pieces. Davies rose high at the far post to net - doubling their lead early in the second half.

Substitute Darren Pratley struck back - heading in to make it 2-1, but we couldn't find the equaliser - which gave Derby County their first home win since November 20th.

Rangel said:

'Everyone was disappointed at Derby, but overall it wasn't a bad game for us,''

'We hit the bar a couple of times and we played a lot better than Derby.

'We conceded two shocking goals, but we had the chance to bounce back after Prats' (Darren Pratley) goal.

'We were all gutted and the changing room was very, very sad. But we said before the game that if we win it wouldn't get us promoted and if we lost we wouldn't be out of the play-offs.

'Our aim a few weeks ago was to catch QPR, but they are now 10 points ahead with nine games to go. It's not impossible, but we have to be realistic and get enough points to get into the top two.

'Once we get a win, everything will change.''


Rangel said there is pressure on the team, but 'nice' pressure:

'There is pressure, but nice pressure that we must try and enjoy,''

'As players we have to keep our cool and look for our fans to make the Liberty a fortress on Saturday.''
