Tate Looks For Permanent Berth

Alan Tate has his eyes on a more regular place in the Swans starting line-up
Tate will almost certainly come into the side alongside Garry Monk in the heart of defence tonight with Lawrence absent for three weeks due to his injury picked up last Saturday at Crewe. And Tate is determined to make his position a little more permanent than just those three weeks as he aims to become an important part of the side that he eventually hopes will seal a return to the Championship this season.
Tate missed a penalty in the play off final last time around as well as spurning a glorious chance to seal promotion late on in the actual game itself against Barnsley and it is memories such of those that spur on the player who grew up in the Manchester United youth ranks that have been so successful in the past.
"I have not had a run in the side all season," Tate told the Evening Post, "and every time I've tried to get one going, nothing has happened.
"I have always said I'd never moan about not being in the team when the lads are doing so well," Tate goes on.
"If we beat Walsall, the draw at Crewe will look a much better result," he points out.
