Andre Ayew

Swansea City were left frustrated after Reading struck a late equaliser to secure a point at the Liberty Stadium. Here we crunch the numbers from the game.

3 – Andre Ayew’s pinpoint cross for the opener was his third assist of the season – following on from his two at QPR – and he leads the way in the Swans squad when it comes to goal created.

4 – Four of the six goals Swansea have conceded in the Championship at the Liberty have come in the second half.

6 – Borja Baston’s third-minute header was the Spaniard’s sixth goal of the season and his first since his penalty in the win over Birmingham at the end of August.

12 – Andy Yiadom’s equaliser was his first goal in almost exactly 12 months, having last netted for Reading in a 3-0 win over Hull on September 22, 2018.

12 – Reading have now gone 12 games without a win against Swansea in all competitions.

46 – Borja’s fine headed finish was just his 13th effort on goal this season, meaning he has a chance conversion rate of 46 per cent.

50 – Saturday’s fixture saw Matt Grimes and Andre Ayew make their 50th league starts for Swansea City
