Andre: Let's build on Hammers triumph

Andre Ayew has challenged the Swans to replicate their stunning home form on their travels as they prepare for another key clash with Huddersfield.

The Swans won their seventh consecutive game on home soil in all competitions on Saturday as they beat West Ham 4-1.

Ayew was a key figure in that victory, with the Ghanaian setting up three of the goals against the club he left in January.

Carlos Carvalhal’s side face fellow relegation rivals Huddersfield this coming Saturday as the battle to beat the drop enters another intriguing weekend of action.

With just two wins from 14 attempts on the road in the league this season, the Swans will look to improve on that record as they take on the Terriers.

And Ayew is hoping they can match their performance against the Hammers in Yorkshire this weekend.

“West Ham was a big victory and an important game for us," he said.

“We lost in a bad way at Brighton and needed to bounce back. We needed to make up for it in front of our home fans.

“We showed character, courage and played good football.

“It was important we showed good energy and proved we have momentum at home. We now need to do the same away from home.”

He added: “We need to keep working hard because the league is still open and very tight.

“It is very tight and it is going to be like that for a long time. We just need to keep focused. We don’t give up and keep fighting. We will try to make it up the table.”
