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

Martinez Craves Magic Touch

Roberto Martinez has said his side are lacking the magic touch in the final third that will see them convert draws into wins.

The 0-0 draw at home to Coventry on Boxing Day was City's seventh successive draw in a club record run.

Despite dominating possession, again, the Swans could not find the killer touch in front of goal to claim a much needed victory.

But the ever positive Martinez told BBC Sport that his side will continue to work hard to maintain the high standards he sets them.

'What we are missing is finding that little bit of magic around the box, finding that final good decision and a little bit of unpredictability in your play to score goals.'

'That's something we need to keep working on.'

'But we got promoted last season and we keep performing to very, very high standards.'

'Coventry were extremely well organised and worked extremely hard for the point and in that respect they made life quite difficult for us.'


If Coventry were tough, then Birmingham on Sunday will prove an even sterner test. The club has confirmed that fans can now pay on the gate at St. Andrew's.
