25th February 2020
First team
Fulham Jonjo Shelvey

As Swansea City prepare to face Fulham on Wednesday evening, we take a look back at some memorable previous meetings between the sides at Craven Cottage.

Here we recall past games in the Premier League and Division Two

Fulham 1 Swansea City 2

Premier League - November 23 2013

Fulham Jonjo Shelvey

Jonjo Shelvey came off the bench to net the winner to secure the Swans’ first win in six matches, leaving Fulham in the Premier League relegation zone.

Aaron Hughes put the ball into his own net in the 56th minute to sum up a frustrating start to the season for Fulham.

The Cottagers’ captain Scott Parker scored his first goal for the club with a curled effort to cancel out Hughes’ own goal just eight minutes later.

Shelvey then fired home the winner when he made space on the edge of the box to slot past Maarten Stekelenburg.

The Swans finished the 2013-14 season in 12th position in the Premier League and reached the Europa League knockout phase.

Premier League – December 29 2012

Fulham Danny Graham

Michael Laudrup’s Swans recorded their first win in five Premier League games courtesy of goals from Danny Graham and Jonathan de Guzman.

Playing in place of Swansea’s injured top scorer Michu, Graham gave the Swans a first-half lead against the run of play after David Stockdale failed to collect a cross from Nathan Dyer. Graham was on hand to net his first Premier League goal in four months from close range.

De Guzman doubled the Swans’ advantage, netting after Stockdale’s clearance was deflected off Brede Hangeland.  

Fulham pulled a goal back after the break through Bryan Ruiz after the ball fell to him from a Dimitar Berbatov effort which cannoned off the bar.

The Swans finished the 2012-13 season in ninth position in the Premier League, and also secured the club’s first major honour by winning the League Cup.

Premier League – March 17 2012

Fulham Joe Allen

Swansea City moved up to eighth place in the Premier League thanks to a brace from Gylfi Sigurdsson and a Joe Allen goal.

The Iceland international met Scott Sinclair’s pass in the area and put the Swans ahead when he beat Mark Schwarzer with a diving header.

Sigurdsson struck again after the break with a controlled finish from a Wayne Routledge cut-back.

The three points were secured when Allen fired home an 18-yard strike after he capitalised on some sloppy play from the hosts.

The win saw the Swans collect a third away win in four attempts and Brendan Rodgers’ side would end the 2011-12 campaign in 11th place in the Premier League.

Division Two – February 23, 1980

Tommy Craig’s penalty saw Swansea City pick up a first win in five games as they edged out Fulham at Craven Cottage.

John Toshack’s side had taken the lead on the half-hour mark through Robbie James, only to be pegged back by a Kevin Lock penalty.

However, a wonderful run from David Giles ended with the Swans midfielder getting fouled in the area with 21 minutes to play, and Craig made no mistake from the spot.

The Swans would go on to finish 12th in the table, before going on to claim an historic promotion a year later.
