Ghana international Andre Ayew was on the score sheet for Swansea City in the English Championship on Saturday afternoon.

 
 

Huddersfield Town ended Swansea City's unbeaten start to the Championship season as Josh Koroma's first Terriers goal gave them a 2-1 win at Liberty Stadium.

 
Carlos Corberan's team lost their opening two games of the campaign without scoring a goal, but caused problems for a Swansea defence starting life without Joe Rodon.
 
Swansea were the better side in the first half, yet found themselves trailing when Harry Tofolo struck from a well-worked corner.
 
Andre Ayew equalised from the penalty spot after Korey Smith was fouled, but Huddersfield delivered a winner in a more even second half which featured chances at both ends.
 
Koroma, 21, guided the ball home from the edge of the penalty area to give Huddersfield a first away win of the campaign and seven points from their last three games.
 
Swansea, for whom this was a first defeat in eight regular-season outings stretching back to 11 July, will feel they should have got something.
 
They had controlled the opening stages, with Marc Guehi forcing an early stop from Ben Hamer before the Huddersfield goalkeeper made a fine one-on-one save to deny Jamal Lowe.
 
But it was the visitors who went ahead through their first chance of the game.
