Cullen keen to play his part in Swansea push

20 April 2021 01:55:16 GMTPlus10

Swansea youngster Liam Cullen says he is ready to replace Andre Ayew and fire the club to promotion.

The Swans are awaiting news on Ayew's hamstring injury, the 15-goal forward having picked up the problem during Saturday's 2-2 draw against Wycombe Wanderers.

Cullen came off the bench to net against the Chairboys, having trained only twice since recovering from his own three-month spell on the sidelines with an ankle issue.

The 21-year-old has now netted three goals in 11 appearances and says he is ready to play his part in the run-in.

Steve Cooper's side sit third in the Championship table with four games to go and face Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday evening. A victory could cut the four-point gap between themselves and second-placed Watford, who meet leaders Norwich in the latest round of fixtures.

After a frustrating time out, Cullen admits he is raring to go and is confident he can fill in for Ayew, should the Ghanaian be sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.

"I feel really fit," said the striker. "I obviously want to play for this club as much as I can but at the end of the day it's not my decision.

"I'll do anything I'm asked by the gaffer to be honest."

He added: "Obviously we've got a massive four games now. We are going to give everything we can to try to get the results we need."

Swansea are 1.80 to win on Tuesday, with QPR 4.50 and the draw 3.75.

Cullen is 3.10 in the Anytime Goalscorer market.
