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

No Guaranteed Return For Trundle

Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez says he cannot guarantee Lee Trundle will make a return to the starting line-up after serving a 2-match ban.

During his absence, we've picked up 6 points using a new 4-3-2-1 formation with Abbott being the lone-striker.

New loan signing Darryl Duffy was left on the bench aaginst Northampton as Martinez stayed with the same formation and side that beat Chesterfield 2-0.

Martinez said: 'He is one of the best players not just in our division but in the Football League and we welcome him back with open arms,'

'Some of his performances in the last few seasons have easily been good enough for him to get an international chance (with the Republic of Ireland).

'Sometimes it's difficult because at Swansea City we are a little bit away from everything geographically. It can be difficult to catch the eye.

'But if you keep working hard every day you eventually get your rewards, and that should be a motivation for Lee.

'There are players every year, like David Nugent this week for England, who play for their country despite not playing club football at the top level. Players should always be given a chance. '

'I always say I don't pick the team, the team picks itself,'

'The fact we can think about leaving Lee out shows you what a great job the other players have done in the last two games. They deserve praise, and whoever you are you need to earn your place.

'What I can tell you is that Lee will play a massive part in the final seven games and, hopefully, the play-offs after that.'
