Wigan boss Martinez admits FA Cup must take backseat

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez admits the FA Cup must take a backseat to Premier League survival.

They lie three points adrift of safety with 12 games to go and a Cup run would add more games in April.

Martinez said: "Every game now is crucial and that starts with the Huddersfield match.

"We have benefited from some changes in the Cup because we have seen what the youngsters can do.

"Changes do not mean we don't take a team seriously."
