Andre Ayew extended his scoring run in pre-season as he netted the opener in Swansea City’s 3-0 win at Swindon Town on Wednesday.

The Ghana international was among the band of players introduced for the second half of the match.

Swansea only had to wait five minutes to take the lead when Modou Barrow cut inside before finding Ayew unmarked inside the area, and the striker fired home from 15 yards.

But it was from a Barrow free-kick that the Swans extended their lead in the 55th minute when Jay Fulton met his cross with a glancing header that flew past Vigouroux.

In the 71st minute, Modou Barrow made it 3-0 when he outpaced the Swindon defence before applying a cool finish.
