In our recent site poll, 65% voted 4-4-2 as the formation they'd like to see Martinez adopt, while only 25% want us to continue with our 4-5-1 setup.
On the opening day of the season last week at Charlton, the 4-5-1 formation wasn't effective up front as Bauza struggled all game to get into good goalscoring positions.
This week however, at home to Nottingham Forest, it seemed to work slightly better as we won 3-1, but the midfield still found it difficult to get Scotland into some goalscoring positions.
He was replaced with 25 minutes remaining by new Summer signing Gorka Pintado. It didn't take him long to make an impact as he scored our 3rd goal 20 minutes after coming on.
There is the argument that a strikeforce of Pintado and Scotland would pose a bigger threat to our opposition but Martinez seems a fan of filling the midfield and using the wingers effectively.
65% want us to change to a 4-4-2, with 25% happy for us to continue using 4-5-1.
Last season, Martinez swapped between the two formations depending on whether we were home or away, but he is yet to do that this year. 4% voted the formation should depend on where we're playing while 6% voted for a 4-3-3 line up.
In our new poll, we want to know how you think we'll fare away at Plymouth next weekend. Will the Swans maintain their momentum or will Plymouth record their first win of the season?
