In quotes: Ayew on Wednesday loss, positive signs, McCormack and Luton

We caught up with Jordan Ayew following Sunday’s opening day defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

Check out the forward’s thoughts below.

On Sheffield Wednesday defeat…

We feel a little bit hard done by. We were unlucky.

The first half was very difficult, we all know that. I think we did very well in the second half. 

We deserved at least a point. We had chances but we couldn’t score. 

We almost went home with a point.

On the positive signs…

We spoke to each other at half-time about how to improve and the need to play with confidence.  

I think everyone saw in the second half there was an improvement. There were positive signs.

If we keep playing the way we did in the second half in the future then I’m sure we’ll win games. 

On playing alongside Ross McCormack for the first time…

I thought Ross had a really good game. He put in a very good performance.

We need time to gel. He only arrived a few days ago but we all enjoyed playing alongside him. 

We need a little bit of time together. 

On the importance of the EFL Cup game at Luton Town on Wednesday…

We just have to win. We know we’re the favourites and they’re the underdogs.

It’s important to be wary of their threat, they’ll be really up for the game. 

A good run in the cup is our main aim.

Winning brings confidence and will only help us going into our next two home games against Rotherham and Huddersfield Town.
