Tate savours sweet derby success

09 November 2009 02:24
Tate's antipathy towards Cardiff is well documented after he was pictured with team-mate Lee Trundle holding an offensive flag following Swansea's Football League trophy victory in 2006.

And the 27-year-old admits Saturday's South Wales derby eclipses even last season's Carling Cup victory over Premier League Hull City.

He said: "Money can't buy the way I'm feeling after that victory. It's the best feeling in the world. I can't even begin to do it justice. Nothing has come close to it, not even the Hull City game.

"It was my best Swansea victory, without a doubt. Everyone knows the history and rivalry between the (Cardiff) fans and myself. They don't like me and I don't like them. That's how it goes in football derbies.

"But it's not just about that. We have real expectations to get into the play-offs and this was another three points towards that."
