The Portuguese international came in for the injured Anthony Gardner and acquitted himself well against a front three spearheaded by Nicolas Anelka.
"I thought Ricardo Rocha did well in only his third start for us," said Martin in his press conference. "Anthony Gardner told me this (Sunday) morning that he couldn't play, we'd had the wins this week with Anthony so that was a blow but Rocha came in and played as if he'd been here for the last two months.
"It's all about spells," continued Martin, when asked about our three wins against Fulham, Everton and Bolton in the last week.
"We had a run of 16 wins in 22 games earlier in the season and people forget about that. We then had Manchester United, Liverpool but the biggest disappointment was Newcastle here when we had 23, 24 attempts on goal but lost the game.
"Bolton are a team playing with a lot of conviction but we defended well."
