Swansea leave it late…again!

Andre Ayew struck a second last-gasp penalty for a second game in a row to earn Swansea City victory over Middlesbrough and move Steve Cooper’s side up to third in the Championship.

Ayew had put the Swans ahead when he volleyed in his 12th goal of the season five minutes before the break after a defensive mix-up by the visitors.

But they looked as though they had been denied all three points when Sam Morsy’s deflected strike in second-half stoppage time brought Boro level.

However, there was still time for Jake Bidwell to make a run into the Boro box and as he attempted to reach a cut-back was fouled by George Saville and the officials awarded a penalty.

And, as had been the case in the win at Stoke in midweek, Ayew kept his nerve to seal the most dramatic of victories.

It means Swansea climb above Brentford and are a point behind second-placed Watford with two games in hand.
