Jordan Ayew Sees Red In Swansea City Draw At Huddersfield Town

Swansea survived with 10 men from the 11th minute to eke out a 0-0 draw with Huddersfield and inch further clear of the Premier League's relegation zone on Saturday.

"It was right in front of me", Carvalhal told club website.

"I don't usually talk about refereeing decisions, but I think this one was from the fourth official".

Despite losing Jordan Ayew to a straight red card in just the 11th minute, Carlos Carvalhal's side battled through sustained pressure to secure a vital point in their bid to avoid relegation.

"It will take a bit of time for him to try and help the team but I believe he will be ready to be involved in the 18".

"Two players fought very hard for the ball and their feet were in exactly the same position".

Huddersfield immediately set about making the advantage count, Christopher Schindler heading high with one chance while Ince and Alex Pritchard both had attempts blocked.

Ayew, whose contribution to the Swans attack has been terrific since manager Carlos Carvalhal took over from Paul Clement in December a year ago, was given his marching orders by referee Michael Oliver following a horror tackle on Jonathan Hogg in the 10th minute of the game. I think Jordan slipped a little on the pitch and their player did the same.

"We will analyse it and see if we have reason to appeal". "They tackled each other, it was unsafe, but they both did it".

The 26-year-old was dismissed having nearly caught Jonathan Hogg on the knee in a thoughtless attempt to win the ball.

"Of course I would rather have Jordan available than not for the next three games", Carvalhal added.

"We are still playing and still fighting even without them". We just had to do our best to keep them out and get something from the game.
