This time Swansea grabbed the top place in the table of Championship
all thanks to the victory at the Valley that concurs with a rare visit from the
American owners of the club. Steve Cooper the head coach had met Jason Levien
and Steve Kaplan in person previously just one time before they go to a game
that got settled by a goal in second-half from Andre Ayew, who had been seen
ruled out earlier.
Cooper said, “I had a meeting with them quickly ahead of the game
and hopefully they are happy with the result. I make sure I speak with them
regularly. And we are all there in open communication.” The FA has started
an investigation to look into the blame that Jonathan Leko had been abused by
the goalkeeper of Leeds Kiko Casilla.
That Valley contest had concluded to the score of 1-0 to Charlton and West Bromwich lost no time in copying the scoreline in this one with a rising drive into the top corner. Adam Matthews provided the cross that was redirected into Leko’s way; the Wales protector had experienced childhood in Swansea however rather started his profession at Cardiff. Steve Cooper’s side, better under lock and key than the enterprising hosts, were back on level terms inside 17 minutes through Yan Dhanda.
The midfielder saw a low drive diverted past the span of home goalkeeper Dillon Phillips after the Swans had kept the ball moving quickly in a packed restriction box. In the second half of the same Jay Fulton was starved of by an at close range parry by Phillips at the far post, with headed follow-up of Ayew ruled out by a raised flag. Things were clear in the 65th minute, however, when Charlton was not able to deal with a corner to let Ayew an easy finish.
