Martinez also expects many people to be wondering why his side are still in the Barclays Premier League bottom three given recent performances, but he knows they must make their superiority in games count.
The Latics outplayed champions Manchester City in a rearranged clash at the Etihad Stadium in midweek but were beaten 1-0 after a flash of brilliance from Carlos Tevez seven minutes from time.
The result left Martinez's men, who have staged dramatic late-season recoveries in each of the past two seasons, three points adrift of safety, albeit with a game in hand.
Martinez: "If you watch our performance and think Wigan Athletic are a team in the bottom three you would scratch your head. That brings disappointment.
"We have been in this position before and know what to expect but that doesn't make it easier.
"It is going to be a really tough ending of the season and for me it is the hardest battle we have had for a few years but we are ready for it.
"The performance was as good as it gets but sometimes getting the three points is out of your hands and that was the case.
"We have got things very clear. We need to perform exactly the same as we did here. If we do that the points will come, there are no two ways about it.
"The plan was to accept we were facing one of the best teams in the world and even being perfect, we could concede a goal. Carlos Tevez invented that opportunity.
"We just had to play in a manner where we scored more goals than them.
"The overall performance was complete, we just couldn't find that clinical touch to score the goal.
"But if you assess the performance we were the better side and that is an incredible compliment to my players.
"The manner in which we stood up, the manner we kept the ball and opened Man City up, it was very pleasing to see.
"Tactically the boys were fantastic but it was one of those days in football when you realise you can control everything apart from the result."
"We don't look at the table. That is something you maybe hear too often but it is the truth.
"We have our targets and games in front of us. All we want to do is win every single game.
"We didn't go to Manchester City for a point or damage limitation. We wanted to win and we deserved to win.
"But we have to learn. When we deserve to win, we have to win."

Please vote in our poll:
Is It Time To Replace Pardew?
What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?
Away fans are housed on one side of the Smethwick End, where the normal allocation is 3,000 seats. This means that this stand is shared with home supporters. For cup games, the whole of this stand can be allocated to away supporters, raising this figure to 5,200. The facilities and the view of the pitch in the Smethwick End are okay, although the leg room is a little cramped. I have been to the Hawthorns on a number of occasions and have always found it to be a fairly friendly place. The only thing against it, in terms of a day out is the lack of nearby pub for away fans, meaning that most elect to drink inside the ground instead. Considering that the concourse at the back of the Smethwick End is pretty small in comparison to its overall capacity, then it can have uncomfortable feel, especially when there is a capacity away support. Strangely I noticed that fans were not allowed to bring in take away food from the nearby McDonalds. Food available on the concourse includes; Cheeseburgers (£3.70), Burgers (£3.50), Chicken Balti Pies (£2.90), Chicken & Mushroom Pies (£2.90), Cheese & Onion Pies (£2.90), Steak & Kidney Pies (£2.90), Sausage Rolls (£2.90) and Pasties (£2.90).
Look out for the West Brom Mascot called 'Baggie Bird', who does a good job of entertaining the away fans before the game. This even involves going in goal and challenging players to take a shot!
Greg Whitaker adds; 'I've been to the Hawthorns twice as an away fan and had a similar problem on both occasions. There is a huge metal gate, outside the stadium, next to the away fan section. On my first visit, this was closed before the game, meaning we had to walk in a big loop through a load of residential streets to get round to the other side of the gate. On my most recent visit, the gate was closed after the game. There are no signs to give you directions and, with it being an evening game, I ended up wandering deserted streets in the dark trying to find my way back to Rolfe Street station'.
Where To Eat And Drink?
The main pub for away fans is 'The Vine' which is about a 15-20 minute walk from the ground. From Junction 1 of the M5 turn left towards West Bromwich town centre (opposite direction to the ground). Take the first left into Roebuck Street. The Vine is down on the left. You can also street park in this area and then walk to the ground. This pub also offers Indian food and has an indoor tandoori barbeque (from 1pm on Saturdays), plus has a beer garden with children's play area. Barbara Osborne a visiting Newcastle United fan adds; 'The Vine from the outside looked like any small corner boozer, but inside it was quite large and it was fairly easy to get served. It had a good mix of home and away fans.' Martin Parnham a visiting West Ham supporter informs me; 'If going by train to the Hawthorns and intending to visit the Vine pub, then it is quicker to get off at Smethwick Galton Bridge station, from which the pub is a ten minute walk; On coming out of the station turn left. You will reach a roundabout at which you turn left onto Telford Way (A4168). At the next roundabout turn left again into Kenrick Way. Cross over to the other side of the road via the pedestrian crossing and you will see in front of you a pedestrian/cycle path. Follow this path which goes under the M5 and on exiting the underpass, the pub is 50 yards up on the right'.
Dave Wilson recommends; 'The Park Hotel which is just off junction one of the M5 and a 10 minute walk to the ground. You can park on their car park for £5 and away fans are always welcome. There are plenty of families who meet in here before games and it is a very safe environment. There is also plenty of street parking in and around the area of the hotel if you don't want to pay the £5.'
Sean Mowat a visiting Sheffield United supporter adds; 'As you pass the ground on the right on the main Birmingham Road. Carry on about another half a mile and there is a pub on the right set back off the road called the Royal Oak. We've been in the last two times we've visited WBA. The beer is okay and they also serve Asian food (try the chicken kebabs!). It had a friendly atmosphere'. It also has the added benefit of showing televised football.
If travelling by Metro or train from Birmingham Snow Hill and you like your real ale, then it may be a good idea to stop off on the way to the Hawthorns at the Jewellery Quarter station. Within a 10 minute walk of the station are at least three pubs serving decent real ale. These are the Rose Villa Tavern, Red Lion and Lord Clifden. The Red Lion and Lord Clifden are both listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, whilst the Brown Lion has recently opened and is effectively the brewery tap for the local Two Towers Brewery. See the Google map below for their locations (this will require you to use the arrows to move the map down and then to the to show the Jewellery Quarter and pubs).
Alcohol is also available within the ground, albeit in plastic bottles/cans, in the form of Carlsberg (£3.70), Tetleys (£3.70) and Strongbow (£3.60), plus Red and White wine, Smirnoff Ice, and various Spirit Minatures (all at £3.80). How To Get There By Car And Where To Park
The Hawthorns is located on the A41 (Birmingham-West Bromwich Road). If approaching from outside the area the ground is about half a mile from Junction 1 of the M5. On leaving the M5 take the A41 towards Birmingham, the ground is on your right. Beware though of speed cameras on this stretch of the A41. Street parking or alternatively there are a few private matchday car parks at some local industrial units near the ground, or at Hawthorns station which costs £4.
The Hawthorns has its own railway and metro station which are about a five minute walk from the ground. It can be reached from Birmingham New Street, by first taking a train to Smethwick Galton Bridge and changing there for the Hawthorns. Total journey time is around 20-25 minutes. Alternatively the Hawthorns is also served by direct trains from Birmingham Moor Street and Birmingham Snow Hill. The metro line runs from Birmingham Snow Hill. Remember if travelling by train then you can normally save on the cost of fares by booking in advance.
