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

Rangel: Lets Get Back To Business At Stoke

Swansea City right back is urging the team to 'get back to business' this Saturday as they face a tough game away at Stoke City.

Michael Laudrup's side have experienced two consecutive League defeats and they'll aim to avoid that becoming three this weekend.

The Swansea boss was keen for his team to experience that winning feel again on Tuesday night, and they did after beating Crawley Toen 3-2 in the Capital One Cup third round.

Rangel said:

'We will have bad games,'

'We have suffered two defeats in a row which is not great but we don't have to go crazy and act like we're a relegated team.

'Stoke is a difficult place. They caused us trouble from set-pieces (last season) but we can compete.

'If we have the ball, hopefully we can go there and get a result.'


After a superb start for the Swans, which saw them win their first two games and draw their second, two defeats recently has suddenly seen the likes of BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson say that it's worrying times for the club as they can't maintain possession as well as they could last season under Brendan Rodgers.

You do wonder if Lawrenson pays full attention. It's five games, we're in midtable, we've scored 10 goals and we hit the ground running this season despite having another change in manager. Our form has dropped slightly but as Rangel says, hopefully we can put that right again at Stoke.

'It's a marathon. Sometimes you will win away and lose at home,'

'You have to go game by game. We lost three points last weekend against a very good team.

'Hopefully we can get back to business against Stoke.'
