Andre Ayew is still taking the Championship by storm this season.
After some impressive performances for the table-topping Swans already this campaign. Ayew cemented his place as one of the club’s most important players with the winning goal against Charlton.
Swansea were stunned inside two minutes with Jonathan Leko putting the hosts ahead, capitalising on a poor clearance and firing home..
The visitors were level 15 minutes later, with midfielder Yan Dhanda finding the net with a deflected finish from the edge of the penalty area.
The game remained level until the second half when a corner was flicked on by Rondon and found its way to Black Stars captain Ayew who stabbed home in the 65th minute.
Andre also had another goal, a header, disallowed controversially after the referee adjudged that the ball had gone out of play before it was crossed to him.
Swansea, however, held on for their sixth win of the season which keeps them a point clear of Lead United at the top of the table.
It was the perfect way for Swansea to bounce back from a run of four games in all competitions without a win.
The goal was Andre’s first in the Championship this season and his third overall in nine games. The player has also set up three goals for his teammates.
Swansea manager Steve Cooper praised Ayew for his goal and his performances over the course of the season.
“He’s playing well Andre.”
The goal was, however, Andre’s first league goal in three years for Swansea but his manager believes that with the first out of the way, more will follow.
“I had said, ‘They’re coming mate and you just need to get the first one’. With him scoring tonight, hopefully, that will stop him thinking about that too much.”
Andre Ayew was also voted Man of The Match by Swansea fans who were delighted with his performance.
I thought Ayew was immense for Swansea tonight. Absolute handful whenever he’s near the box.

Andre Ayew is a gem to watch in the Championship, he just glides past opponents like they weren’t there and Borja drags defenders away with his strength to allow him to move into space. Both frozen but now really taking their chance and looking brand new players under Cooper.
