Martin: Promotion is all that matters

A brace from the 21-year-old striker helped the Canaries firmly on their way to a commanding success, with three further goals from Gary Doherty, Oli Johnson and Grant Holt seeing off the lacklustre Us. Revenge had been firmly on the cards for Paul Lambert's side following the 7-1 reverse on the opening day of the season but Martin insists promotion is the club's number one priority. Martin told the Norwich Evening News: "It was always in the back of people's minds I think, especially the fans. They obviously remember it and the lads who played in it wanted to make sure we laid it to rest, and I think we made a big statement. "But I think our motivation is promotion and that's a big motivation for anyone in this league." He added: "We probably thought it was going to be a lot closer than it turned out but I think that was due to our dominance in the game. We showed great fighting spirit and that's what got us the result."
