Ghana forward Andre Ayew made a stunning cameo with a brace as Swansea City came from behind to beat Northampton Town 3-1 in the first round of the Carabao Cup Tuesday night.
The Swans struggled to create clear cut chances for long periods and got stunned in the second half as Matt Warburton gave the Cobblers a shock lead at the Liberty Stadium.
But substitute Ayew netted his first goal for the club in more than three years to level proceedings eight minutes from time before George Byers’ put the Swans ahead soon after.
And the Black Stars captain completed his brace with another headed effort at the death to ensure Swansea progressed into round two.
It was Andre Ayew’s first outing for the Swans since their final Premier League game against Stoke City in May 2018.
Swansea will next face Cambridge United at home in the second round of the Carabao Cup.
