Forget The "Punched Balls" . . . Swansea City Boss Russell Martin Insists He Should Take The Rap

Russell Martin has told Swansea City fans he takes responsibility for the collapse of their two-goal lead against Millwall that cost them two precious Championship points. The Swans head coach insists the collective lack of authority that resulted in two own goals in injury time – and a 2-2 home draw – is down to him. Martin was angered by one of his benched players – understood to be Jamie Paterson – punching the ball back towards the visitors and enabling them to take a quick throw-in, from which they scored their equaliser.
