Wycombe home Ayew injury

Steve Cooper says it is too early to know the full extent of Andre Ayew’s hamstring injury, but acknowledged the Ghanaian is unlikely to feature in Swansea City’s clash with Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday.

Top scorer Ayew was forced off after just eight minutes of the 2-2 draw against Wycombe after feeling a twinge in his hamstring.

There are just four games remaining in the battle for automatic promotion, with the next seeing the Rs visit SA1 in midweek before the Swans head to face Reading next Sunday.

“With Andre, it’s too early to say,” said head coach Cooper when asked about Ayew,

“He has walked off with a hamstring, I haven’t seen him yet but we expect it will take about 24 to 48 hours to settle down and for us to know the extent of the injury.

“We don’t know yet, but you can’t walk off after eight minutes and play a few days later unless something extraordinary happens.

“I don’t want to speculate really, until it settles down and we get it scanned we won’t know the full extent of the injury.”
