Ghana striker Jordan Ayew is yet to score his first goal for English Premier League side Crystal Palace.
Ayew has been used in most of their games by manager Roy Hodgson since he joined the side from Swansea City.
His recent goal drought has been criticized by some Palace fans but the 26-year old is confident of rediscovering his goal scoring form.
“The most important thing for me is to work for the team and to make sure the teamwin,” Ayew told his club’s official website.
“My personal view is that the goals will come when they come. I’m not stressed or panicked at all.
“I just keep on working hard and I’ll get rewarded one day.
“We know we have confidence in ourselves.
“This league is not easy but [on Sunday], we had a good performance and we’ll build on that.”
After opening the scoring through Luka Milivojevic’s first half penalty, Palace lost their lead and were trailing 2-1 after recess, before the Serbian converted a second spot-kick seven minutes to full-time to share the spoils.
“I think we deserved three points but that’s part of the game,” said, Ayew.
“We had some unlucky moments but they’re part of the game too.
“A point is good, good for the confidence. We’ll see what will happen next.
“We have to stay positive because we had a very good performance today.”
