'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Martinez: Championship In Sight

Roberto Martinez has his sights firmly set on gaining promotion with only 7 games remaining and believes three more games will be needed to prevent a grandstand finish.

In truth Swansea are 7 points of a club record points tally of 85 points , and with the club facing teams in the lower half of the division in the run in who would bet against Swansea from breaking that record?

Not looking back to Carlisle United in 2nd , Roberto Martinez can firmly see the Title in sight despite the lead cut to 5 points by The Cumbrians who have a game in hand over Swansea.

Third placed Doncaster Rovers have dropped 8 points in three games have given The Liberty Stadium side with a solid 10 point cushion going into April.

Should Swansea win over Hartlepool United on Saturday, Champagne will be put on ice in readiness for a promotion party to see Swansea go into the 2nd teir of British Football. Promotion would be no more than Martinez's side deserve after a sensational season that has brought a new confidence and swagger to a club that only 5 seasons back looked threatened to be relegated from the football league.

The Journey of the club since that eventful day could not be more meteoric from moving to a new stadium to attracting players touted by Premiership clubs.

Martinez Told The SWEP

'''If you're pressing me on how many points I think it will take, I think less than three wins will see us promoted,

'We have got 79 points now and the club record is 85, but I'm not looking at any targets. I don't want to think about how many points it will take, I want us to get our performances right.

'If we do that, we'll be okay when we look at the table on May 3.''


Swansea City face a long trek to face 13th placed Hartlepool United on Saturday.
