Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray had nothing but positive sentiments regarding Ghana international Andre Ayew.
"It was a tight match, but credit to them for digging in and getting the result," Mowbray said after the match.
"They are second in the league now and they are a good side. In Ayew, you can see they have a class striker – one of the best in this division.
"I'm disappointed, especially with the goals we gave away. They were unlike us. It must be two years since we gave away a goal from a direct header at a corner.
"It was a frustrating day because we had some opportunities, but one of those has to go in. We were up against a team with a very good spirit and you could feel that spirit."
