Cheltenham: Andre Ayew scores first season goal

Andre Ayew scores against Cheltenham

Black Stars deputy captain Andre Ayew scored his first goal of the season in their game against Cheltenham on Wednesday night to help West Ham to reach the Carabao Cup third round

Senegalese international Diafra Sakho gave the visitors the lead before Andre Ayew sealed the win for the Hammers with a fine finish before the end of the first half.

West ham has been on the losing side since the start of the season with back-to-back defeats.

Liberated by the opening goal, West Ham turn on the style and double their lead, though it’s poor goalkeeping from Jonathan Flack again.

Sakho’s first-time pass played Ayew through on the right, but the Ghana forward’s task was made easier by Flack’s decision to come off his line and open up the angle with bizarre positioning.

All Ayew has to do is slip the ball into the very big target granted to him by the Cheltenham keeper and this tie looks devoid of drama now.
