The Honduran international was impressive throughout City's 3-3 draw against Ipswich on Wednesday, managing to notch one goal whilst constantly posing a threat to the Town defence.
Now Martinez has been included alongside Jay Bothroyd, who grabbed Coventry's other goals, in Strachan's squad to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.
"The two of them put in good performances last night and neither of them has done their case any harm, that's for sure," the City boss told the club's official website.
"Jay, in spells, showed you what a fantastic player he can be and in spells he shows you what a dozy, big person he can be as well!
"But I thought Jairo was excellent for the whole game. I thought Jairo, for 90 minutes, ran, chased, passed. He scored a goal and made goals."
