The Whites managed to get back to winning ways after a superb win with goals from Thorsteinsson and Harris.

Fulham hadn’t won a game since late November when they hosted Leicester City and were desperate to turn things around against visitors Swansea City.

The Whites managed to turn their fortunes around via two late second half goals coming from Jon Dagur Thorsteinsson and Jayden Harris.

The first half was extremely quiet for both teams as they failed to make any real chances.

With twelve minutes to go the home side finally broke the deadlock when Michael Elstone’s through ball found Thorsteinsson who managed to round the keeper and convert his chance with a composed right footed finish.

Less than a minute later the Whites doubled their lead in similar fashion. This time it was Matt O’Riley who played another beautiful through ball towards the feet of Harris who hit his effort superbly in to the bottom corner of the net which secured all three points for the Whites.
