Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez shrugged off the antics of Paolo di Canio during their FA Cup defeat at Swindon Town.

Martinez, a study of concentration in his technical area, turned a blind eye to the colourful cabaret six yards to his right.

He said of Di Canio: “Every manager has different methods, but when the game is in progress you are not aware of what is going on in the opposition dugout.

“What counts is allowing players to express themselves and putting together a strong side. That’s what is happening at Swindon with the manner they are playing and they can be extremely proud of their performance.”
