Wigan boss Martinez: Cup exit no setback

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has no problem being dumped out of the FA Cup by Swindon Town.

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez has no problem being dumped out of the FA Cup by Swindon Town.

Martinez should be worried about the feebleness with which Wigan meekly accepted their fate at the County Ground.

But he said: “I don’t see it as a setback. It’s a fantastic competition, but for us winning the Cup is staying in the Premier League and our Cup final is the day we pass 40 points.

“I feel we are stronger now than we were before the Swindon game because I have seen nine players who can help the team.”
