Swansea:

Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm and Fulham forward Clint Dempsey experienced contrasting fortunes as the Welsh side won 2-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.

After a drab first half, Swansea took the lead in the 56th minute when Scott Sinclair's shot hit United States international Dempsey before beating goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

Vorm made a string of outstanding stops to protect his side's lead, culminating with a penalty save from the unfortunate Dempsey in the 87th. The Dutch 'keeper dived to his right to keep out the spot kick after Ashley Richards had fouled Kerim Frei.

Substitute Danny Graham wrapped up the three points for the hosts in injury time.
