Martinez: It Was A Hard Point

Martinez: It Was A Hard Point

Swansea City had to be content with a point as they played out a thrilling 0-0 draw against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground last night.

The league leaders arrived at the ground late after traffic delayed their arrival. Swansea officials tried to get the game delayed so that the squad could get a full warm up.

Their pleas were ignored and there was only a slight delay. It did not seem to imped them as Swansea got out of the traps with the customary high tempo. Neither side could manage to secure the much needed breakthrough as Forest tightly marked the creative threat of Andy Robinson and Thomas Butler.

Former Swan Nathan Tyson could have stolen all 3 points at the death but his shot blazed over the bar.

The result narrows the gap at the top of the league one pile to 10 points after Doncaster Rovers bounced back from the 4-0 drumming against Swansea to win 2-0 over Hartlepool United

Martinez despite securing a point at the City Ground has admitted that his side did look tired in certain stages of the game.

Martinez Told The Evening Post

'We all knew how difficult it would be coming here - their record speaks for itself - and it's a hard point for us."

'I thought in certain stages we looked a bit tired. We didn't have that edge we normally have, particularly in the final third.There were a couple of accidents and a journey that should have taken 20 minutes took one hour and 10 minutes."

'We tried and failed to get the kick-off delayed, but as usual the boys adapted to the challenge in front of them"



Swansea received some bad injury news as Paul Anderson looks set to miss games after pulling up with a thigh strain only 14 minutes into the game.
