Swansea 2-0 Fulham
Barclays Premier League - Saturday, 10 December 2011
Second-half goals from Scott Sinclair and Danny Graham saw Swansea earn a crucial victory over Fulham at the Liberty.
But goalkeeper Michel Vorm was instrumental in the win as he saved a late penalty from Clint Dempsey in his seventh clean sheet of the season.
In a first half of few chances, Luke Moore came closest to opening the scoring when his 25-yard strike came back off the crossbar.
But the Swans broke the deadlock just six minutes into the second half as Sinclair' shot took a huge deflection on its way past a helpless Mark Schwarzer.
Fulham almost hit back immediately as Dempsey set up Bryan Ruiz with a defence-splitting pass, but Vorm reacted superbly to keep the home side ahead.
Substitute Kemy Agustien then hit the woodwork just moments after coming on, but Fulham were handed a great chance to haul themselves level when they were awarded a penalty with four minutes remaining.
Keim Frei was adjudged to have been tripped by Jazz Richards in the box, but Dempsey saw his spot-kick superbly palmed away by Vorm.
And the Swans completed victory in the final minute as Danny Graham flicked in from close range following a corner from Mark Gower.
