Swansea City will be looking to score their first goals at Huish Park tomorrow as Martinez's side take on Yeovil Town.
The Swans visit the League's 8th placed side on the back of two excellent away wins at Leyton Orient (5-0) and Bournemouth (4-1).
The jack army will also back the side with a strong support of nearly 1,500.
Yeovil boss Russell Slade:
'I know it will be perhaps our strongest test of the season. They are scoring plenty of goals, particularly on their travels, with five at Orient and four at Bournemouth and we know that will be difficult.
In my opinion they are the most accomplished team in the league. They are going very well and they've got a nice balance about them.'
'It's a huge challenge for us to go there and try and change all that,'
'It's not going to be easy, but we are ready.'
Lee Morris (knee), Marvin Williams (ankle), Terry Skiverton (groin) and Marc Bircham (hamstring) are all sidelined with long-term injuries.
Also missing will be Lee Peltier who serves a one-match ban.
Marcus Stewart could also return after an injury.
Lloyd Owusu is the club's top scorer this season with 4 goals in 12 League starts.
He has had previous spells with Brentford, Sheffield Wednesday and Reading and has scored consistently throughout his career.
He joined the Glovers this season and has quickly proved to be a good addition to the squad.
Roberto Martinez has a near full team to choose from but is likely to name an unchanged side from 2 weeks ago.
Darren Way is the only player who is sidelined with an injury and he is still waiting for the chance to face his former club.
Martinez will have the luxury of a strong bench with the likes of Duffy, Britton and Robinson all fully fit again.
The on-loan Cardiff City striker has scored 4 goals in the last 3 games and is our most consistent goalscorer as of late.
Form Last 6 Games:
Yeovil: Home: W D L L D W
Swansea: Away: W W L W W L
Yeovil's last home victory was a 2-1 win against Carlisle 2 weeks ago.
This season their home record Won 2, Drawn 2 and Lost 2.
I'm expecting us to finally get a goal at Huish Park but I can't see us getting all 3 points. 1-1 Draw.
