What The Boss Says - Martinez Ahead of Hull Game


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez speaking ahead of tomorrows trip to the KC Stadium to face Phil Brown`s Hull City side says that it will be a totally different game than last weeks mauling of Chelsea.

Hull find themselves next to the bottom of the Premier League with just one solitary win this season, that was against our mates from up the road at the Reebok when a scrappy 1-0 was enough to beat Bolton, add to that a 1-1 draw at Wolves and the rest has been hugely disappointing for the guys from Humberside.

One thing is for sure though they will be up for a fight and hoping to put last weeks drubbing at Anfield when Liverpool ran out 6-1 winners, firmly behind them, Roberto must get his side focused and carry on the good work from last Saturday.

Speaking to the press Martinez says: 'It will be a completely different game for us this week, but that is the nature of the Premier League'

'It's important we are ready, because it's probably the wrong time to be playing Hull.

'On the back of the disappointment they suffered at Liverpool, everyone will be expecting a reaction.

'We need to be aware of that and ensure the intensity in our play is good enough to cope with that.

'You need to be adaptable in the Premier League and we know it will be a completely different kind of game against Hull than against Chelsea.

'But the performance level has to be the same, and that's probably the biggest test we have at the moment.'

'I think many people would appreciate that the main reason Hull are in the Premier League is Phil Brown, so I don't know how he can be considered to be in a position of being under pressure,'

'I think Phil knows better than anyone how to get the best out of his team.

'Although every boss in the Premier League is under pressure when they don't get results, if any manager deserves time to turn it round, it's going to be Phil.'
