Swansea fullback Tate: Why should I feel sorry for Martinez?

Swansea City defender Alan Tate offered no words of comfort to Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez after Saturday's win.

Tate, who made his comeback as a second-half sub after breaking a leg jumping off a runaway golf trolley in a bizarre mishap back in August, had no sympathy for his old boss.

He said: "I don't feel sorry for him. He made his choice to leave.

"He knows the game. He knew what he was getting into and he has to take the ups with the downs.

"Wigan won't catch us now. We said before the game that if we won we could scratch them off. It's a 13-point difference now.

"But we're not safe yet. With 11 games to go, we're still looking at the table. It's only teams mid-table that can afford not to."
