Swansea boss Roberto Martinez insists his side will remain unmoved by Histon's claims over the postponement of their FA Cup third round clash.

The game was called off due to a frozen pitch at Histon's Glass World Stadium prompting Histon chairman Gareth Baldwin to accuse the Swansea staff of pressuring referee Phil Crossley to postpone the clash.

Martinez told the South Wales Evening Post: "Whatever Histon want to say is down to them. If they want to disrespect other institutions through the press then I think they are in the wrong jobs. We are not annoyed by what they've said."

He added: "We've got too much on our plate at the moment, with a fantastic game at Burnley and a busy run of games in the league, to be annoyed about comments in the press.

"The only sour note for us is that the pitch inspection at Histon wasn't held on Friday afternoon or at 6am on Saturday, because at least then our fans wouldn't have had to travel for nothing," Martinez told the South Wales Evening Post.
