Fulham’s final game of the season ended in a disappointing defeat away to Swansea City.

Fulham’s final game of the season ended in a disappointing defeat away to Swansea City.

The Swans started brightly, dominating possession and enjoying plenty of space down the left. From that position, Kenji Gorre unleashed a curling effort that flashed just wide in the 16th minute.

Soon after, Magnus Norman did well to deny Owain Jones after the Whites had lost the ball cheaply, before Fulham began to work their way into the game.

The visitors could have gone in front but Elijah Adebayo failed to make contact with Josh Smile’s excellent corner and the big striker put a chance wide from close range on the half-hour mark.

Dan James then fired the wrong side of the post from eight yards, but Swansea were in front in the 34th minute, Adnan Maric poking in after getting on the end of a cross.

At the other end, Liam Donnelly saw a free-kick comfortably saved by Gregor Zabret in the 40th minute after Luca de la Torre had won a free-kick just outside the area.

The Swans began the second half on the front foot and increased their lead in the 55th minute. After a foul by Shane Elworthy on the edge of the penalty box, Gorre quickly took the free-kick and bent a fine effort in via the far post.

In response, substitute Aaron Redford had a header saved by Zabret after meeting a corner. Fulham appeals for a penalty were then waved away after Redford went down under a challenge from Zabret.

James then had an effort parried away by Norman, before Adam King went close with a low drive. But it was 3-0 to the hosts in the 73rd minute when Gorre tapped home from close range.

With a minute left, Dennis Adeniran sent Redford through but his low shot was saved by Zabret, before Stephen Humphrys cut inside but fired wide of the far post in the final action of the game.
