Swansea City Manager Roberto Martinez has been quick to praise his squad after a 2-0 win over Walsall in the Carling Cup last night.
After an even opening spell Swansea City took the lead with a well taken Volley by Paul Anderson that left Clayton Ince in the Walsall goal stranded.
Swansea could have been behind early on if it was not for the saves of De Vries as Mooney fired two shots which the Dutchman was able to save with ease.
Jason Scotland made it 2-0 late into injury time.
Roberto Martinez Commented that the result was a good squad effort and that the depth of the Squad was also a factor in the result.He said on the Official Site:
|''If we want to succeed at this level, you've got to have a strong squad.'|
You can't do it on 12 or 13 players because the whole squad has an important role to play.
We set out to win every match and the Carling Cup is no different. Every member of my squad will play a massive role for us this season and you can see even in the training sessions that they all want to be winners.
I was very pleased with the way the boys performed and we won it with two quality strikes from two different types of players.'
|'Paul Anderson is mature beyond his 19 years, while Jason Scotland has scored two goals now that are out of this league. He is strong with both feet; a winner and a fighter with lots of confidence.'|
Then you look at the performance of 17-year-old Joe Allen. He keeps surprising us, but I know there is still a lot more to come from him and he's already showing me that he could be a first team player.'
|'You have to take your chances at this level and Tommy should have made them pay'|
I felt we were better than a very good Swansea side during the second half and perhaps didn't deserve to lose by two goals.'
