Andre Ayew has scored 16 goals and provided 7 assists in the Championship this season.

Andre Ayew netted his 16th goal of the Championship season against 10-man Brentford in the semi-finals of the playoffs.

Swansea were playing at home in the first leg and needed a late strike from the Ghana captain to give the Swans the advantage ahead of the second leg.

Ayew, who had the chance to give Swansea a lead earlier in the second half from the penalty spot, had been faultless from the spot during the 2019-20 campaign, but he was denied by Raya’s trailing right hand to keep the scores level.

The match took a dramatic turn a couple of minutes after the penalty miss as Brentford’s Henry was shown a red card for a rash challenge on Roberts near the right-hand touchline.

With less than 10 minutes to go, Ayew made amends by firing Swansea ahead with a well struck volley.

Swansea City head to Griffin Park with the advantage in the play-off semi-final against Brentford on Wednesday night.
