Hodgson praises Jordan Ayew

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Crystal Palace manager, Roy Hodgson has hailed Ghanaian forward, Jordan Ayew following his heroic brace in the thumping win over Leeds United.

The striker, often overlooked despite his incredible work rate, has been the star of the South London side since the return of Hodgson.

Ayew provided the match-winning assist in the game against Leicester City a fortnight ago, before scoring twice as the Eagles secured a 5-1 win at Elland Road.
