Russell Martin insists Swansea City have a natural goalscorer in Joel Piroe and that goals will flow once the Dutchman adjusts to the Championship. Martin saw his Swans team fail to score for the second successive match on Wednesday night when they were held to a goalless draw at home to Millwall. The result means Swansea have yet to win at home in the league this season, have just one victory from their opening seven games, and have scored just four goals.

Russell Martin insists he is under no pressure to get Swansea City promoted this season – but next season will be different. The Swansea City head coach – whose team host Millwall tonight – is still looking for his first home victory of the Championship campaign. The Swans have so far won just one game out of their first six and are languishing in 20th place in the table, above the relegation zone only on goal difference. They have also only scored four times in those half a dozen matches.
