Swansea Ace's Ready To Fire

Roberto Martinez looks all but set to play all his ace's against Horsham Town in the crucial FA Cup 2nd round replay at The Liberty Stadium this evening.

With the postponement of Swansea's league one fixture to Bristol Rovers on Saturday the squad were handed a surprise break.

It is that break that has concerned Martinez so much so he looks set to play his full starting 11.

In the 2nd round fixture at Queen's Street the Spaniard had rung the changes and made 8 changes to the line up that had faced Hartlepool United just 3 days earlier.

The Squad reshuffle led was to prove costly as Swansea were left reeling after Horsham forced a replay.

Sky will be broadcasting the match live something Martinez is all but acutely aware of.

In his first full season of management the former Chester City player is looking boost the profile of the Liberty Stadium outfit.

He Told :
The Evening Post

'The fact that the Bristol Rovers game was postponed will alter the team I pick to face Horsham.'

It's going to change our whole approach because it's not a good thing to let players go for 11 or 12 days without a game.'

We need the players to keep ticking over to keep their fitness at a certain level.'

It's very difficult to play the same players twice in three days and expect them to maintain the same standards, but losing our game on Saturday to the weather has changed things.'

We know that the cameras are coming again hoping to see an upset, and whoever plays must be ready for that.'

Everyone watching will be hoping we have a bad evening and that's not a role we want to play, but we have to try to be ourselves and take this chance to improve our profile around the country.'



The Prize that awaits the victor of this evenings replay is a tie with Blue Square South side Havant and Waterlooville .

Swansea Vital will have extensive match coverage with live chat room, radio commentry,live updates and more.

We played well against Northampton and certain things paid off. If we put out mostly the same team, then I would expect partnerships and understandings to develop for future league games.
