'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Richards: I'm Ready For Blackburn Game

Swansea City's Jazz Richards says he is ready to step in for Angel Rangel at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

The Spanish right back is set for around a month on the sidelines with an ankle ligament injury that he picked up in last Saturday's 0-0 draw at home to Aston Villa.

Richards replaced Rangel during that game and while he admitted that he was nervous early on in the game, he quickly grew into it during the second half.

'[I'm] ready to go out and play Blackburn now,'

'I've got to take my opportunity.'

'I'm ready for it whereas last week when I was chucked on [I] wasn't expecting it. This week I'm expecting it and ready.

'Usually coming on you do feel a bit nervous and then after 10, 15 minutes you feel fine after you've touched the ball.

'All through the game I felt sick. It's not like me usually because when I'm into the game, I'm into the game.

'I was nervous at the start. After coming out for the second half I felt fine.

'I think it was knowing who I was up against, the team and the occasion and playing at home. But I thought I came through the test ok.'


Richards also told BBC Sport that he is looking to take his big chance to impress:

'I'm going to grab it with both hands,'

'Hopefully I will have a few more games and get my chance to play.

'Midfield was my favourite position but I haven't played there for so long. It would be nice to play there in the future but at the moment I'm focused on right-back.'

'Blackburn are lower down the league but we don't underestimate them for a second,'

'You shouldn't underestimate any team in the league really because who knows what the result is going to be.

'I think it's a good opportunity for us to go there and get three points.'
