Martinez: Squad Is Ready
Boss says Blues are focussed ahead of race for Champions League.
Roberto Martinez says Everton will take Tuesday's victory at Newcastle in their stride as the race for Champions League qualification hots up.
The 3-0 win at St. James’ Park, coupled with Arsenal conceding a late equaliser against Swansea means the gap between the two is down to just six points.
The Toffees have a game in hand on the fourth-placed Gunners and the two sides will meet at Goodison on Sunday 6 April.
And while Everton's fine victory over the Magpies has offered increased hopes of dining with Europe's elite next season, Martinez says his players are not getting carried away.
He told evertontv: "[The three points] are really important but that's not the end of the season.
"We've been working really hard for the last 10 months and you can see the team is ready to give everything in every game and make every single Evertonian proud.
"We'll see how many points that gives us.
"Now we need to refresh and regenerate for Fulham. It'll be a completely different game but we'll have to bring the same momentum and intensity that we showed [at Newcastle]."
