The Ghana international is struggling to shake off a hamstring problem during a clash with Wycombe Wanderers three matchdays back.

Ayew, who has scored 16 goals in helping Swansea reach the Sky Bet Championship play-offs for a second successive season, impressed off the bench at Reading on Sunday after a hamstring niggle.

But Swansea head coach Steve Cooper says Ayew has had a “little setback” and Andre will probably be given a breather before the final game of the regular season at Watford.

“I think we need to get the balance right. There’s still two games left to play. A lot of good can come out from that in terms of results and performances. A lot of players are in good form and we want to keep the momentum going,” said the manager, as reported by his club’s official website on Thursday.

“There’s a few lads like Andre [Ayew] who’s struggling a little bit physically that we need to be careful with. He wasn’t 100 per cent against Reading, and in an ideal world we wouldn’t have used him. He’s had a little setback, but he’s not completely out for Saturday – if he is then he should be fine for Watford.

“Resting players, it’ll only be because they medically can’t play, it won’t be because they physically can’t play.

“There’s two games to play and we want to play well and win those. There’s two weeks of work which we will respect, then we’ll focus on the play-offs.”
