Angel: It's in our hands

Angel Rangel has urged Swansea City to maintain momentum by claiming a positive result on the road when they travel to Huddersfield Town this weekend.

The Swans climbed five places to 13th in the Premier League table following last week’s 4-1 victory over West Ham United and are now three points clear of the relegation zone.

Rangel will miss out tomorrow as he continues his recovery from a groin problem.

But the club skipper was part of the last Swans side who went to Huddersfield.

Roberto Martinez's men were 1-0 winners at the John Smith’s Stadium in League One back in March 2008.

Fast forward a decade and only goal difference separates the clubs in the Premier League table.

“I remember that Huddersfield away is always a tough game,” Rangel said. “And this time it is a massive game for both teams.

“We have to think about ourselves first. We’re in great shape at the moment. 

“The confidence in the team is so high. We’ve put ourselves in a position where everything is in our hands now.

“Considering we were bottom of the league in January, the fact we are now 13th and three points away from danger is fantastic.

“A positive result away from home would be great for us. When you play against an opponent that is close to you in the table, it’s important that you don’t lose.”
