Boss praises left-back following Bradford City drawLions boss Neil Harris admitted his side probably didn't quite do enough to win Saturday's top-of-the-table clash with Bradford City.
"I think we were little reactive in the first-half rather than pro-active," Harris said afterwards.
"At half-time I said to the boys, 'just up the tempo a little a bit, be a little bit more aggressive in possession'. We were better in possession after the break but still not up to our usual standards.
"Joe Martin has a really dodgy shoulder. He's had to have treatment and all sorts to get himself out on the pitch today.
"I said to him in-front of the players that I didn’t always praise individuals but he certainly deserved it today as up to yesterday morning he wasn't even in contention to play. But he told me he wanted to and he’s in a lot of pain now, but it shows the man's character and professionalism.
"We have been a little bit stretched of late, but once we get our players back from international duty, and including Lee Gregory from injury hopefully sooner rather then later, then that just leaves us with Shaun Cummings and Shaun Hutchinson who are both edging closer too."
