Martinez: Draw Would Have Been Fair Result

Roberto Martinez felt his side deserved to get something our of tonight's game at QPR.

The Swansea City suffered his first back to back defeats in the League as Leigertwood's headed goal on the half-hour was enough to give QPR their first League win in 10 games.

The Swans showed no signs of improvement from Saturday, when they lost 3-1 at home to Crystal Palace.

Martinez changed half of outfield side tonight, making 5 changes. Garry Monk returned to captain the side at the back, while Serran moved over to left back to replace the injured Alan Tate.

Leon Britton and Nathan Dyer were dropped to the bench to make way for Guillem Bauza and Joe Allen. Mark Gower was missing from the 16-man squad as Tom Butler returned to the left flank.

Jason Scotland was also dropped to the bench as Gorka Pintado leaded the line up front.

Martinez felt his side showed the right reaction after a poor first half, he told BBC Sport:

'It was disappointing not to get the result we were looking for.

'We lost to a soft goal from a set-piece, and to lose in that way hurts.

'The boys showed the right reaction in the second half, and we deserved to get something out of the game.

'Overall, I don't think anyone deserved to win the game. A draw would have been a fair result, but Rangers took advantage of one set-piece.'

From the last available 18 points, we have 6. Not playoff form. When we had 11 games left, Martinez target was an average of 2 points per game to get into the playoffs.
