Andre Ayew continued his impressive goalscoring form in the Championship with a brace in Swansea City’s 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough.
After scoring a late penalty which gave Steve Cooper’s side a 2-1 win over Stoke City on Wednesday, Ayew opened the scoring at Liberty Stadium after taking advantage of a defensive error.
The 31-year-old’s strike separated both teams for the majority of the encounter until Egyptian midfielder Sam Morsy grabbed a stoppage-time equaliser for Middlesbrough.
Both teams were poised to share the spoils on Saturday after the leveller but Jake Bidwell won a penalty for the hosts in the last minute of added time which was converted by Ayew.
The double extended the Ghana international’s tally to 12 goals after 32 league matches for the Swans who are now third in the table with 65 points from 33 games, a point behind Watford who have played two games more.
