Andre Ayew scored his first Swansea City goal as the Welsh club were held to a 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
The Ghana international – signed from Marseille last month – found the target 14 minutes into the second half, before Robert Tesche restored parity.
Striker Bafetimbi Gomis sat out the fixture with a reported hamstring injury amid mounting speculation linking him with a move to Al Ahli in the United Arab Emirates.
Former Swansea goalkeeper Dorus de Vries was on hand to keep out good chances for both Kyle Naughton and Ayew in a first half that ended goalless, while Jamie Ward drew a save from Lukasz Fabianski with a low drive at the other end.
It was the visitors who took the lead just short of the hour mark, though – Ayew firing home from close range after receiving the ball from Naughton.
That lead lasted just nine minutes as an off-balance Fabianski failed to keep out a Tesche header.
Eder had the ball in the back of the net with a volley in the 73rd minute but the effort was chalked off for handball.
The Portuguese then tested De Vries with a dipping effort four minutes from time and Forest held on for a hard-earned draw.
