Tony Pulis was particularly encouraged by Wednesday’s first-half display as we took a point from Swansea on Wednesday evening.
After seeing his side earn a 1-1 draw in South Wales, Pulis said: “I thought we played really well in the first half. After the first 10 minutes of Swansea possession I thought we played into the space more and looked like a really good passing team.
“They changed their system in the second half. Ayew is one of the best forwards in the league and him coming on was the difference.“
He was full of praise for the squad in the absence of several first team starters and added: “We had six players out tonight, those players would have started, so the squad have done fantastically well, especially with two away games in a row.”
Referring to Keiren Westwood, who limped off early in the game with a groin injury, Pulis said he would be assessed ahead of the home game with Stoke on Saturday.
