Andre Ayew marked his Swansea City return in style with a brace in their 3-1 comeback win over League Two club Northampton Town in the first round of the League Cup.
Ayew was introduced after the hour-mark to make his first appearance in a Swansea shirt since May 2018.
The Liberty Stadium outfit found themselves behind in the 61st minute after Matthew Warburton opened the scoring for the visitors.
With the game nearing the end, the Swans showed resilience in the final 10 minutes, starting with an equaliser in the 80th minute courtesy of Ayew’s header.
