Orlandi Relishing Brighton Chance

The 25 year old is hoping to be involved in tonight's match after coming on as a substitute at the Walkers Stadium. Echoing, Dutch shot-stopper Dorus De Vries's sentiments yesterday, the former Barcelona player is also out to put the loss to the Foxes right as he vowed to the WM, he said, “I hope to be involved and hopefully we can try and get over Saturday’s result. After the way we played in the second half it’s good to have a game to focus on and put it right.”

“We can’t dwell on things, you don’t have the time because three days later there is always another game. But we are a lot better than we showed. The first-half was okay, but against strong sides like that you have to be at your best so we have to learn, improve and go again.”

Bemoaning his lack of match fitness the Spaniard believes that his best is yet to come and has admitted that the Swans were no where near their top form on Saturday, “Personally, I hope I can be involved because I need more minutes to get fit. I had 30 minutes against Leicester but I would like more to be at my best.”

“It was hard coming on when I did. The manager wanted me to help us hold onto the ball more but we just couldn’t do it as we were not playing anywhere near our best.”

“We have to put that right because we have two tough games at home in the league with Boro and then Reading. And winning can help that, no matter who you play. Confidence from winning is always good and that is what we will look for against Brighton.”
