Despite his super-huffiness last weekend, it seems Oba Martins is back in the good books at SJP following his tireless display against Stoke. Once again unlucky to be taken off against the Potters, he didn`t spit the dummy out this weekend as Mark Viduka waddled onto the pitch in his stead. Hughton bigged up our Nigerian saying:

‘It’s all about emotions, and what Oba showed last week at Middlesbrough was that he was upset at being taken off, and sometimes you don’t mind that. But what he showed against Stoke was respect for the fact that there are reasons you make changes – and that’s what we would expect from him.’
