Martinez wary of wounded Tigers

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez admits he cannot have any sympathy for Hull counterpart Phil Brown ahead of Saturday's clash at the KC Stadium. Hull are currently on a four-match losing streak - three of which have come in the Barclays Premier League - and slipped to next-bottom of the table after last weekend's 6-1 hammering at Liverpool. But Martinez, whose side won one in six prior to the surprise victory over Chelsea, does not feel sorry for Brown as he is wary of being turned over by the wounded Tigers. "There is no sympathy in that respect. I think this is the worst time to play them," he said. "Losing against Liverpool the way they did urges you to produce a reaction and that is the dangerous state Hull are in and we need to be aware of that. "They will look to bounce back in front of their fans. They had a big disappointment but I am sure everyone at Hull is hoping the team is going to click. We all hope they are not going to click at the weekend but we need to be prepared and ready and expect a completely different game to the one we had against Chelsea."
