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 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.
