Millwall v Wigan: Martinez hails Maloney and McManaman

In the wake of Wigan's 2-0 victory over Millwall that saw them progress to the FA Cup final Roberto Martinez hailed the contribution of goalscorers Shaun Maloney and Callum McManaman.

Maloney put up Wigan ahead before McManaman sealed the victory with twenty minutes remaining and Martinez hailed their attacking threat, praising McManaman as having 'a real rawness about him but he showed great composure' and stating that the 'real Callum McManaman' was on display. Maloney's opener was his second important goal of the week, following his last minute equaliser at QPR last week and Martinez hailed him as 'a magnificent talent'.

Martinez was not surprised at Millwall's fightback in the second half, saying 'we expected it [the fightback] and huge credit to Millwall' but felt that Wigan handled the pressure at set pieces well.
