Jamal Lowe believes Swansea City put things right after they ended a four-game losing streak as the striker netted his first goals since January in a convincing 3-0 win at Millwall.

The Swans had suffered consecutive losses to Bournemouth, Cardiff, Birmingham and Preston before their trip to London, with Steve Cooper’s side responding in perfect fashion at The Den.

Andre Ayew’s 15th goal of the season on the stroke of half-time gave the Swans a deserved lead at the break, with Lowe finishing off the Lions later in the contest.

The 26-year-old, who went into the match not having scored in his last 17 games, doubled the Swans’ lead in the 76th minute before an excellent finish from Ayew’s assist sealed the visitors’ biggest league win of the season.

Lowe was named man-of-the-match for his efforts, and the forward was delighted with the Swans’ performance and result following a difficult period.

“For the boys it’s about getting back to winning ways and playing the type of football the way we want to play,” said Lowe.

“It has been a rough patch for us, but we put that right. Everyone to a man was brilliant.

“The timing of Andre’s opening goal could not have been any better. It’s a great finish – that’s the quality he has got – and it changed the mood going into half-time. We would have thought we could have created more and been ahead, but that flipped the mood.

“For me, there are going to be patches where I don’t score, and there’s going to be games when I score back to back. But it was great to be back on the scoresheet.

“It’s the same thing though – keep getting into the right positions and doing the right things, and work hard in training. This result is what you get from that.”

The result means the Swans sit 10 points behind second-placed Watford, with a game in hand, and six above Reading, who occupy seventh, going into the final six matches remaining.

But Lowe was quick to point out that the Swans won’t let their focus slip as the Championship enters a crucial stage.

“We just take it game by game,” he added. “If you look too far ahead, you can get lost in the fixtures.

“We have to focus on winning games and putting points on the board. We won’t be looking around and seeing what the other teams are doing.”
