Martinez rues Swans demise

Swansea City boss Roberto Martinez was disappointed after seeing his side edged out 2-1 by Fulham in an FA Cup fifth round replay at Craven Cottage.
Two goals in the final 13 minutes of the game sent the Swans spiralling to defeat and meant they missed out on the chance to host Manchester United in the last eight of the competition.
"I have a bit of the same feeling we had after the first match," Martinez admitted.
"I was extremely proud of our players, of their approach to the game and there was a good arrogance about our play.
"But we're disappointed because we didn't have that bit of luck you need in the cup.
"Perhaps we scored a little bit early, because what we're good at is keeping the ball, holding possession and after we scored we weren't able to do that.
"I just hope the Swansea fans are very proud of us."
