LONDON (AP) -Swansea capitalized on mistakes by backup goalkeeper David Stockdale to beat struggling Fulham 2-1 Saturday in the Premier League.

Stockdale was making his first top-flight appearance for 11 months in place of the injured Mark Schwarzer and was partly at fault for both goals - by Danny Graham in the 19th minute and Jonathan de Guzman in the 52nd.

Fulham pulled a goal back when Bryan Ruiz's shot went in off an offside Sascha Riether, but still slipped to a defeat which leaves them four points above the drop zone.

The first goal came after Stockdale pushed a cross straight back into danger, and Graham hooked the ball back into the net.

Stockdale then cleared the ball straight against Brede Hangeland and it rebounded for Pablo Hernandez to square for De Guzman to sidefoot home.
