Swansea City have suffered a blow as right back Angel Rangel will miss the next 4-6 weeks with a thigh injury.

The Spaniard picked up the injury during last Saturday’s 4-0 home win against Preston North End and he was forced to leave the pitch during the second half.

A scan this week revealed that he has a slight tear in his thigh, Rangel told the Official Site:

‘I felt it go during the Preston game and I had to come off,’

‘And when I went for the scan during the week it showed that I had a small tear. It’s disappointing but I’m just going to have to keep an eye on it over the next few weeks.’
