Swansea City are back in League action on Tuesday night as they travel to Watford, brimming with confidence following Saturday's excellent FA Cup performance at home to Premiership side Fulham.
Martinez's side dominated the game at the Liberty Stadium but missed a number of superb chances to progress through to the quarter-finals and set up an attractive home tie against World Club Cup winners Manchester United.
Swansea City could move into the play-offs if Burnley and Bristol City slip up but we'll have a chance of getting ahead of them in the League when we play our game in hand at QPR in a few weeks time.
The Hornets are currently struggling in the relegation zone but a recent 3-0 win against Burnley was impressive and we can expect a tough game.
Swansea City played Watford twice in the same of 3 days in November. In the League, we beat them 3-1 thanks to goals from Bodde, Scotland and Bauza.
We were unable to repeat that success in the Carling Cup though as Williamson's first half goal gave them the win.
Watford have no new injury worries and they'll be pleased to have Jack Cork and Mike Williamson avaialble again as they both missed Saturday's FA Cup tie against Chelsea.
Sidelined for Watford are long-term casualties Gareth Williams and Mark Poom.
Priskin has scored 8 goals this season, 8 of them in the Championship. He opened the scoring in Saturday's FA Cup tie against Chelsea but a hatrick from Anelka gave the Premiership a comfortable win in the end.
Priskin also scored a brace in the 3-0 home win against Burnley but top scorer Tommy Smith, with 12 goals to his name, hasn't scored this year, his last goal was in mid-December, a penalty in the 2-1 victory against Coventry.
Like the hosts, Swansea City have no new injury concerns so Roberto Martinez is likely to name the same side that drew 1-1 with Fulham on Saturday.
Still sidelined with injury are Ferrie Bodde, Darren Pratley and Marcos Painter.
Looks like scoring every game now and got his 17th goal on Saturday, getting the equaliser against Fulham.
Swansea City are looking for their first win away at Watford in 30 years to complete the double over the Hornets.
Head to Head: 12 Watford wins, 7 draws, 18 Swansea wins.
Watford's last 6 at home: WWLDWD.
Watford have a decent home record in the League despite their position, and have lost just once in the last 6.
Watford are a side battling to get out of the bottom three and I have a feeling we'll be happy to get a draw out of this one. Prediction: Watford 1 Swansea 1.
