externally insulated wall - battens required ?



I am planning insulate an external stud wall with celotex-type board,
between the structure and the plywood facing. It is suggested to fix
battens through the insulation board and attach the plywood to the
battens, but this will add another inch to my wall width. Can I just
omit the battens, and fix the plywood with screws straight through to
the studs ?
