De Vries hopeful of big year

05 October 2010 02:01
Swansea goalkeeper Dories De Vries believes the club has all the ingredients to enjoy their most successful season in the Championship since returning to English football's second tier. City, who finished top of League One in the 2007/08 to secure their comeback to English football's second tier, have enjoyed a good start to the present campaign and currently sit eighth in the table, level with sixth placed Burnley on 16 points. De Vries says the Welsh side can have a great season if the players mix their experience and quality with the desire to play as a team. He told the South Wales Evening Post: "We're a more mature squad now, we've progressed again and step by step we're progressing still. We have all the ingredients to do well, we have quality from back up to front. "We can get great results away from home if we believe in ourselves and play as a team - that's what Swansea have always been about. We can score a lot of goals, but the key is to play as a team. Then it can be a great season. "Let's hope we can start well after the international break because we have a couple of big games coming up. Hopefully all the little injuries we've got will be sorted out and the squad will come back stronger."
