Vorm: We Have To Beat Fulham on Saturday

Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm insists that the team must beat Fulham at home on Saturday following a run of poor results.

Brendan Rodgers' side have failed to win in the last four games, and Saturday's 4-2 defeat at struggling Blackburn Rovers was probably our most disappointing result of the season so far.

The defence and our away form in general is becoming a big concern now as like last season, the Swans are still struggling to pick up points on their travels. We're yet to win away from home this season so far, and we've picked up just 2 points on the road. Not only that, but along with Arsenal, we've conceded the most goals away (18).

The drop in form sees the Swans in 15th place, four points ahead of Blackburn Rovers in 18th.

Michel Vorm believes that the Swans have their first 'must-win' of the campaign this upcoming Saturday, as they host Fulham, who beat Liverpool 1-0 on Sunday.

"We have to win. We know we can beat anyone at home - but the pressure is on us after Blackburn.

"At this level there is no easy game but we know we have to win most of our home games, especially if you are not winning away.

"The goals we conceded up there were too easy and we had individual faults.

"We played against a team who I don`t think were that good but we conceded four goals. That is not possible.

"So we have work to do, we will train hard and move on because Fulham is a must-win game.

"It`s as simple as that."


Vorm also said the team have to 'bring more' against the teams in the bottom half of the table. The Swans put all of their effort to claim a point at Liverpool, but they've struggled at the likes of Norwich City, Wolves and Blackburn Rovers.

"In matches like against Blackburn, Norwich and Wolves we have to bring more,"

"These kind of matches are more important than playing against Manchester United or Liverpool.

"Blackburn are a team below us and we knew they would fight for every ball.

"Any player can give more against Liverpool.

"It`s easy to do that.

"We must learn from it and make sure we win our games at home - but we have to learn really quickly because the competition is going so fast. Blackburn are coming up fast."
