No sell out for Swans trip

Swansea have been unable to sell out this weekend's clash with West Ham - despite having temporarily reduced ticket prices.

Although match day adult tickets for this Sunday's Premier League clash have been reduced to just ?30 across the board, the Welsh club still have plenty of tickets available for sale and are still pushing them - just 48 hours ahead of the game.

Managerless since parting company with Garry Monk last week, former West Ham managerial candidate Marcello Bielsa remains one of the favourites to land the post. However that is unlikely to happen before this weekend's clash takes place - a game from which West Ham will be seeking their first win in seven matches.

One player who will be doing his best to deny West Ham that much-needed victory is Swans star man Andre Ayew, another who was linked with a move to the Boleyn Ground in the summer.

The 26-year-old Ghanaian international has scored six goals in 17 appearances for the under-performing Jacks since moving to Wales in June and admits that he and his fellow team mates need to win the game for their fans.

"In this situation we need points, and we will do everything we can to get points at home," he told Swansea's website. "The supporters will be behind us again. Lately it has been difficult for them because of our results, but hopefully we will make them proud on Sunday.

"Hopefully our fans will be enjoying their Christmas with three more points to our tally."

Caretaker-manager Alan Curtis - who took charge of last weekend's 2-1 defeat against Manchester City - will remain in charge of Swansea for this weekend's clash.
