Martinez not fazed by Kiev

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has urged fans looking to travel to their Europa League last-16 away leg not to worry after the Toffees were paired with Dynamo Kiev in yesterday's draw.

Trouble flared at Dynamo's round of 32 second-leg victory over Guingamp in Kiev on Thursday, the game having to be suspended for around 10 minutes by referee Martin Strombergsson towards the end.

But Martinez said: "At the moment there is a UEFA investigation going on and we don't know any more details from that point of view. But I don't think there is anything to worry about at this stage for any of our fans - at the moment it is just about concentrating on the first leg and seeing how the investigation goes with UEFA."
