John Arne Riise: Has made 31 appearances this season for Fulham

The Cottagers have endured an inconsistent campaign that has tailed off dramatically in the last two months to leave them 15th in the table.

Their Premier League safety may already be secured ahead of the final-day match with Swansea, but defender Riise says the team want to finish on a high.

"It's a very tough place to go," he said ahead of the trip to the Liberty Stadium.

"They've had a bit of a slump after winning the League Cup but they're still a great side. It's a hard place to play but we want to finish on a high.

"We don't want to end the season having taken just one point from the last eight games - that's not what Fulham is about.

"Hopefully we'll have a good week in training, get our energy back and finish on a good note.

"We're not thinking about our holidays yet - now is not the time, we've still got a game of football to play.

"We're on a bad run of form and we want to end that so we go into the summer in a good frame of mind."
