Ayew: We're determined to bounce back
16th March 2017
Jordan Ayew admits the Swans have put their Hull setback behind them as they target a return to winning ways at Bournemouth on Saturday (5.30pm).
Paul Clement's side missed the chance of extending the gap between themselves and the relegation zone after a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the KCOM Stadium last weekend.
Just three points separate the Swans and third-bottom Hull going into the next round of fixtures, with a trip to the South Coast awaiting Clement and co.
And Ayew revealed the squad are determined to produce recent performances which have seen an upturn in fortunes.
"It was a difficult game for us, although we could have got something out of it. We were unlucky with some opportunities we had," said the Ghanaian winger.
"But the game has gone now. We don't have to think about it - we have to look at the big games which are in front of us.
"We are still in a good position so we just have to keep going, forget about what happened last weekend and continue on our good run."
Ayew came off the bench at Hull after he replaced the injured Fernando Llorente at half-time.
The 25-year-old led the line for the second half, which is just one of many attacking positions he is capable of fulfilling.
His previous appearances off the bench also saw him play on the wing, but he insists he's happy to feature in whichever position Clement sees fit.
"Everyone asks me that question, but to be fair I don't mind. As long as I am on the pitch, I can give 100 per cent for the team.
"Hopefully then I can be efficient and decisive.
"In France I usually played up front. Then, when I went to Aston Villa I played everywhere. I was up front, behind the striker, on the wing. Sometimes when we were attacking I was used in holding midfield!
"I don't mind which position I play, so long as I am on the pitch. I love the game so I don't mind.
"I have had to be patient for my chance as the team has been doing well.
"I have had some minutes on the pitch but the main thing is we keep winning until the end of the season, because then we will still be in the Premier League next season."
