Ayew delighted with Coventry victory


Swansea City vice captain Andrew Ayew is pleased to see the team get back to winning ways in the league.

On Wednesday night, Swansea got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory against Coventry City in the English Championship.

The Welsh club went into the encounter low on confidence after a humiliating 4-1 loss at the hands of Huddersfield Town last weekend in the league. The loss dented their push for a top two finish and automatic promotion back to the Premier League.

They hosted Coventry at the Liberty Stadium determined to immediately bounce back from the setback and a solo goal from defender Benjamin Cabango was enough to secure maximum points.

On the back of an outstanding team performance, Ayew said he was delighted for the vital three points at home.

“We’re delighted with the three points, onto the next one.

“Its time to remain focussed and keep pushing towards the ultimate goal which is promotion.”

Ayew has made 29 appearances this season for Swansea scoring nine times and assisting another two strikes. Coach Steve Cooper will hope for his talisman to remain injury free as they continue to push for a return to the elite level in English football.

It’s very tight at the top of the table with only eight points separating first from fifth in the standings.

Norwich City lead the pack with 67 points from 32 games played and they are in pole position for one of the automatic promotion spots. The Canaries are followed closely by Brentford and Watford who both have 60 points in second and third place respectively. Swansea is in fourth position while Reading and Cardiff City complete the top six.

Last season, the Welsh club fell in the semi-final of the promotion play-offs after losing to Brentford.

The Swans will host Bristol City in a must win game on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium and the 31-year-old midfielder is expected to play a big role.
