Jordan Ayew urges Aston Villa team-mates to sustain performance after Newcastle draw

Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has urged his Aston Villa team-mate to sustain their performance and push up the Premier League after their impressive second-half showing against Newcastle United on Saturday. 

Ayew, 24, scored a superb second-half goal to earn Premier League bottom club Aston Villa a point at Newcastle.

The former Olympique Marseille man drove into the top corner from just inside the area to cancel out Fabricio Coloccini’s close-range opener.

And, after securing the Villians from the jaws of defeat, Ayew has urged his team-mates to continue with their second-half performance.

‘If we play like we did in the second half I think we will win games,” he said in a post-match interview.

Ayew has now scored four league goals in his last eight games of the season.
