But the Villa boss reckons relegation from the Premier League in Ayew's first season at the club did hit the forward's confidence.

Asked about Ayew, Bruce said: "That's Jordan. He's come here for a lot of money.

"He came here at a time when the club was not in the best of health. He's found it difficult.

"There's no doubt he's got ability, we saw that.

"It was a great run and cross for the goal and that little bit of magic is what we've got at the moment where we can just produce a goal without playing that well and he's helped to do that today."
