Andre Ayew on target as Swansea City lose to Etebo’s Stoke City

The Ghanaian forward got his name on the scoresheet as the Swans failed to bag maximum points on their turf

Andre Ayew scored in back-to-back Championship games for the first time this season as Swansea City lost to Oghenekaro Etebo’s Stoke City 2-1 at Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Ghana frontman scored the winner in the 2-1 victory at Charlton Athletic in midweek, and continued from there, opening proceedings from kick-off this time with a left-footed shot from close range.

The Potters would go on to equalise in the 22nd minute via old Swan, Sam Clucas, before substitute Scott Hogan scored the winner at the death to gift Nathan Jones’ side all three points and their first Championship win this season.

Swansea have now dropped from top spot on the log to fourth, one point behind new leaders West Bromwich Albion.

Ayew played the entire 90 minutes and had two shots which were on target. He also made 34 passes with an accuracy of 76.5%.
