Andre Ayew was in action as Fenerbahce ended a six-game winless run in the Turkish Super Lig on Monday with a 3-2 victory over Yeni Malatyaspor

The Swansea City loanee was handed a starting berth in The Yellow Canaries’ important 3-2 win at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium on Monday.

Andre Ayew was handed 80 minutes of game time in his 17th game of the season for the club since switching on loan in the summer.

Mehmet Ekici broke the deadlock just in the second minute to give Fenerbahce a lead.

Arturo Mina, however, restored parity for Yeni 26 minutes later.

Five minutes later, Ekici registered his second goal of the night to restore The Yellow Canaries’ lead.

But once again, the visitors replied with the equaliser, this time through Mitchell Donald, who netted in the first-half stoppage.

The match was heading to a draw until Mehmet Topal found target on the 86th-minute to seal to a 3-2 victory for the home side.

The win has taken struggling Fenerbahce two places above the relegation zone on the 14th position.
