Swansea City individual on the end of Sheffield Wednesday verdict to be proud of

Published

Tony Pulis has hailed the impact Andre Ayew made in Swansea City’s 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday last night.

Pulis picked up his first point in charge of Wednesday last night, sharing the spoils with Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

Wednesday took the lead on 27 minutes when Adam Reach fired in from close-range from a corner.

But Ayew – who came on at half-time – made an almost immediate impact, firing in from the edge of the area after good footwork.

That’s Ayew’s sixth goal of the season, with the Ghana international looking to go one better than the 18 goals he scored last term.

Speaking to the Sheffield Star, Pulis hailed the impact Ayew made last night, calling him one of the “best forwards in the league”.

He said: “In the second half, they changed their system. I think Ayew is one of the best forwards in the league and him coming on was the difference. It pushed us back a bit.

“The psychological effect of him coming on with our defenders was that they took little bit of a step back. They then, really and truthfully, controlled the game and it was only when we changed it right at the end that we looked a lot more comfortable.”

Wednesday remain in the relegation zone after 13 games, sitting 23rd in the league table, five points adrift of safety.

The Verdict

Ayew is excellent and is far too good to be playing at this level, so he is clearly a key asset for the Swans.

He may be 30 years of age, but his quality on the ball is tremendous and he showed it with his goal last night.

He showed clever footwork and took three defenders out of the game before bending an effort into the bottom corner.

If they keep him fit, then they have a great chance of winning promotion this season.
