Angel rallies the Jack Army

Angel Rangel has urged the Jack Army to turn up the volume this weekend as Swansea City look to take a step towards Premier League survival by getting the better of Chelsea.

The Swans are four points clear of the relegation zone with four league games remaining this season.

Three of those fixtures are on home soil, with fellow strugglers Southampton and Stoke City still to visit the Liberty.

But the focus for now is on Saturday's meeting with Chelsea, and Rangel believes the supporters can make the difference for Carlos Carvalhal’s team. 

“Our fans have been fantastic all season,” the club skipper said. “I hope they continue to be loud and proud and get behind the team for our last four games, starting this weekend against Chelsea.

“We all want Premier League football next year. Saturday’s game is a big one for both teams but, playing at home, we have the extra man.”

Rangel, who has not played for the Swans since January 2, returned to full training at the start of April after three months on the sidelines.

And he is hopeful of playing some part in the club’s fight for survival.

“I am 100 per cent fit and feel good,” he added. “Hopefully, I can get back on the pitch soon.

“It would be great to get some minutes under my belt and help the team as much as I can at this important time.”
