Roberto Martinez has hailed Jason Scotland after the Trinidad and Tobago international scored his first goal of the season to down Plymouth Argyle 1-0 at Home Park yesterday afternoon.
Scotland put Swansea ahead just before half time after latching onto Darren Pratley's through ball to fire past Stack in the Pilgrims goal to hand the Swans a well earned win. However it was the 29 year old strikers overall performance that has pleased Martinez. The Spaniard will take heart from the performance and should they continue to turn in those kinds of performances Swansea could spring a few surprises in the second tier of British football.
Meanwhile Scotland was in upbeat mood in presenting Pratley with the man of the match award yesterday and has targeted a 20 goal season but one thing is for sure his manager is more than delighted that the hard work undertaken by the powerhouse striker has paid dividends.
Martinez Told The WM:
|'It was not just Jason`s goal but his overall performance that pleased me. It was the same with the team, it was more important that the performance was there - and it was again.I knew that Plymouth would put us under pressure and when they did we were strong enough to stand up to it.I would have loved to have scored more goals but it would be wrong of me to be critical of the side after a performance like that.Finishing is something that we can work on but I am delighted for Jason that he has got his touch back and his first goal in the Championship. He worked really hard for it.'|
