Angel Rangel insists the next two league games are the most important of the season so far – starting with the visit of Sunderland.
The Swans will complete back-to-back home games in the Barclays Premier League for the first time this term when West Ham arrive at the Liberty next weekend.
But Michael Laudrup’s men must first tackle Sunderland, who sit bottom of the table with just one point from their first seven games.
And Rangel is targeting a first league win at the Liberty as the Swans look to climb the table once more.
“We need to start picking up points, particularly at home,” he said. “We have played against some top teams but we now come up against clubs that we need to beat.
“Sunderland are in a bad moment right now, but we are also at home. We have relied on our home form in recent seasons, and we have been lucky enough to beat some really big clubs at the Liberty.
“We still have to make it a fortress, especially by beating the teams that are in and around ourselves.
“We haven’t won here for a while now so it is important that we do that quickly. With that in mind, these next two games are the most important.”
Also in Saturday’s edition of Jack Magazine, we take a look back at the 1931-32 season in our ‘Swansea City Years’ feature, and we caught up with record signing Wilfried Bony on how he has settled into life at the Liberty Stadium.
As well as this, former Swan Colin Irwin looks back at a classic clash against Sunderland and we look back at Michu’s international debut for Spain following his call-up to Vicente del Bosque’s star-studded squad.
Finally, Neil Taylor is put ‘Under the Spotlight’, while we also bring news of Toshack’s return to Swansea City – his son that is!
There is all this and much, much more so don’t forget to get your hands on a copy from around the Liberty Stadium.
The new-look bumper 76-page magazine is a must for every Swans fan and will be available around the ground, the club shop and online, plus Slee Stores in Plasmarl, Coggers on Wind Street and Browns Newsagent in Landore.
Jack Magazine . . . it really is too good to miss.
