Jordan Ayew scores as Crystal Palace beat Wolves

Ghana's Jordan Ayew was on target as his side Crystal Palace defeated Wolves 2-0 at Molineux in the Premier League on Wednesday, January 2.

It was Jordan's first goal for Crystal Palace since joining them last summer from Swansea City.

Jordan put the visitors ahead with seven minutes remaining, producing a sublime touch to control Patrick van Aanholt's effort before converting from close range.

Luka Milivojevic then made no mistake from the penalty spot deep into stoppage time after Wilfried Zaha was brought down by Ryan Bennett.

The visitors dictated the early play and captain Milivojevic's dipping effort from the edge of the area forced Rui Patricio into a fine save after Willy Boly had been robbed of possession by Andros Townsend.

Raul Jimenez registered Wolves first meaningful attempt - firing over from distance - before Matt Doherty missed the best chance of the first half as he headed over when left in space from a corner.
