Ghana forward Jordan Ayew inspires Swansea to a 1-1 draw at Newcastle United

Published on: 13 January 2018

Ghana striker Jordan Ayew continued with his blistering form in the English Premier as he scored once again to help Swansea to a 1-1 draw at Newcastle United. 

Jordan Ayew score on the hour mark, after heading form his first effort which was stopped by Karl Darlow.

Substitute Joselu scored within four minutes of coming on to earn Newcastle United a draw against bottom side Swansea City.

The visitors, who were denied a first-half penalty when Mohamed Diame appeared to handle the ball, took the lead through Jordan Ayew's header after Karl Darlow had parried his first effort.

But Newcastle equalised eight minutes later when Ayoze Perez's deflected shot fell for Joselu and he shot through the legs of Alfie Mawson and into the net.

Swansea are now four points behind 17th-placed Bournemouth, while Newcastle are now only three points above the relegation zone in 14th.

The Swans nearly grabbed a dramatic winner in injury time but Wilfried Bony's shot was cleared off the goalline by Newcastle's DeAndre Yedlin.
