Roberto Martinez: Irked at his side's inability to kill off Bradford

League Two Bradford soaked up plenty of pressure from their Premier League hosts over the course of a contest that finished 0-0 after extra-time, the Bantams triumphed 4-2 on penalties - with Latics midfielders Shaun Maloney and Jordi Gomez both failing to convert their spot-kicks.

Martinez was disappointed at the Latics' inability to seal victory in a game he thought they had controlled well.

"I never felt that we lost concentration or allowed Bradford to have a big say in the game," said Martinez, who made nine changes to his first XI from Saturday's league win over West Ham.

"I think we controlled it really well, and we were very unfortunate not to convert any of the chances.

"That was why it was a feeling of frustration more than anything."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
