Danny Graham: Found the net in Swansea's 2-1 win at Fulham

Graham netted 12 top-flight goals for the Swans last term but his strike against the Cottagers was only his second Premier League goal of this campaign.

But he stepped up just at the right time in the absence of leading goalscorer Michu, who suffered an ankle injury in the previous goalless draw with Reading.

Laudrup told the Sunday Express: "It was great for Danny to score. It was very important for us but maybe more important for him.

"We had to find a solution with Michu not there, and Danny did a great job. He hasn't scored a lot this season but when a striker scores one, they can suddenly score four or five.

"You can't always win the same way. Sometimes you have to learn to use a Plan B or a Plan C. We showed great character."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
