Vorm: We're ready for West Brom

13th March 2014

Michel Vorm insists the Swans are feeling refreshed and raring to go against West Brom on Saturday.

Garry Monk's side welcome West Brom to the Liberty this weekend in what is a crucial game for both sides.

The Baggies sit in 17th place in the Barclays Premier League, one place above the drop zone on goal difference, while the Swans are four points clear of safety.

A win on Saturday would be a major boost for either side in the battle to stay in the top flight.

And after a two-week break from league action, Vorm feels Monk's side are fully prepared for the visit of West Brom.

"The break came at the right time," explained the Dutch goalkeeper. "We have been able to train like normal to make sure we are 100 per cent ready for this game. 

"It's always good to be in a certain rhythm, but we have played so many games recently and have had a lot of travelling to do.

"I think it's better to play on the Saturday when you have had a proper week to prepare for the game. We haven't had that for a while.

"Over the last few weeks, you can tell there is a lot of positivity around the place. Even though the last result at home wasn't as good as we had hoped, we have been playing a lot of good games and training very well. 

"And now, we can't wait for Saturday to be honest."

Since promotion to the Premier League in 2011, the Swans have enjoyed a lot of success against Saturday's opponents, having beaten the Baggies in four of their five top flight meetings.

But Vorm insists that previous results are not important when it comes to Saturday's match.

"We have played some good games against them, and they know what to expect against us, especially at home, but those games don't matter anymore," added the 27-year-old. 

"The most important thing is now and this game on Saturday because we are all fighting for points.

"We need to win our home games. The next few games are very important for us. 

"I know what we can do; I have a lot of trust in this squad. Even when we had a bad second-half against Crystal Palace, you can feel the squad is fine. 

"We have played a lot of games recently and have done well, so I am 100 per cent sure the results are coming. 

"From the first minute to the last minute, we have to make sure we are on it and don't let them get into their game."
