Martinez: We're still in it

Published Add your comment

Roberto Martinez believes his Swansea side can still force their way into the play-off picture after the 2-1 defeat of Norwich.

Jason Scotland saw his first-half goal cancelled out by Alan Lee's header, but the Trinidad & Tobago international took his season's tally to 23 with a second-half penalty.

"It's about winning at this stage of the season," said manager Martinez, whose side are seven points adrift of sixth-placed Burnley.

Martinez believes the Swans need 11 points from a possible 12 in the final four matches of the season to reach the top six.

He added: "I still believe we can do it but I don't expect to get into the top six unless we get 73 points. After that we will see where it takes us.

"I think it could even come down to goal difference but I think we need all the points open to us. Many things could happen to the top six yet."
