Andre Ayew seeks clinical edge

Andre Ayew may have scored his sixth goal of the season, but the Ghanaian forward feels he and Swansea City need to be more clinical in front of goal.

Having given the Swans the lead at Sheffield Wednesday with an instinctive close-range finish, Ayew was then unable to convert a free header from a Kyle Naughton cross in the second half.

The game went on to finish 2-2 and head coach Steve Cooper revealed Ayew’s disappointment at that headed miss in his post-match press conference.

And the former Marseille man admitted he was far from satisfied with his display, and wants to see Swansea take their chances moving forward.

“We need to be hammering home our advantages and that’s something we’re going to work on,” he said.

“Had we gone 2-0 up, it would have been a whole different game.

“That’s football – there are games when we would get those goals, and games where we’re 1-0 down and have to chase it.

“We should have been more clinical and conceding twice from set-pieces is always difficult to accept, but it’s part of the game.

“I’m pleased to score another goal, of course – although, I would have liked to have made it a double.

“I was quite disappointed in that sense. I’m a guy who is hardly satisfied with himself.”
