Swansea - Swansea beat Fulham 2-0 at the Liberty Stadium here on Saturday for a win that left the newly promoted side in an impressive 11th place in the Premier League.

Second half goals from Scott Sinclair and Danny Graham saw the Welsh side on their way but as just as important in securing what was the Swans' first win in five games was a superb penalty save by keeper Michel Vorm.

The Dutchman dived to his right to deny Clint Dempsey, capping a miserable day for the United States international who'd earlier deflected Sinclair's shot into his own net.

Following Vorm's save, Swansea substitute Graham made sure of all three points for Brendan Rodgers's side when he turned in Mark Graham's injury-time corner.

Goalless at half-time, Swansea took the lead in the 56th minute when the unlucky Dempsey got in the way of Sinclair's shot and deflected it past Fulham's Australia international goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

Fulham looked as if they would equalise when Jazz Richards was ruled to have brought down Karim Frei with just four minutes to go.

But Vorm then produced a brilliant stop before Graham sealed victory.
