​Swansea striker Ayew: Important we build on West Ham win

Swansea striker Andre Ayew believes the club cannot rest on their laurels for the rest of the season.

The Swans enjoyed a wonderful 4-1 win at home against West Ham, which took them up to 13th in the table.

However, Swansea are still within touching distance of getting relegated, a fact Ayew is all too aware of.

"West Ham was a big victory and an important game for us," Ayew told club website.

"We lost in a bad way at Brighton and needed to bounce back. We needed to make up for it in front of our home fans.

"We showed character, courage and played good football.

"It was important we showed good energy and proved we have momentum at home. We now need to do the same away from home.

"We need to keep working hard because the league is still open and very tight.

"It is very tight and it is going to be like that for a long time. We just need to keep focused. We don't give up and keep fighting. We will try to make it up the table."
