Swansea 1-1 Fulham
Marc Goodfellow celebrates his equaliser
Goodfellow was a summer signing from Bristol City
A late Marc Goodfellow goal gave Swansea a friendly draw in their first game at the city's New Stadium.

Premiership Fulham opened the scoring on 51 minutes, midfielder Steed Malbranque's attempted cross from the right sneaking over Willy Gueret.

Swansea brought on club legend Alan Curtis, 51, for the last 10 minutes of his testimonial match.

He watched admiringly as new wing Goodfellow went on a great run to beat Zat Knight four minutes from time.

It was just reward for the home team, with Goodfellow - a summer signing from Bristol City - having already struck the post, and Andy Robinson and Lee Trundle going close.

The result was greeted rapturously by the sell-out crowd of over 12,000.

The stadium's capacity is 20,000, but it was limited for safety reasons in the first game at the venue.

Swansea City: Gueret, Ricketts, Austin, O'Leary, Tate, Martinez, Britton, Akinfenwa, Trundle, Forbes, Iriekpen. Subs: McLeod (Forbes 69), Connor (Akinfenwa 46), Robinson (Martinez 78), Goodfellow (Connor 69), Anderson (Ricketts 87), Bond (Trundle 89), Tudor-Jones (O'Leary 87), Curtis (Britton 81), Murphy (Gueret 89).

Fulham: Crossley (Drobny 46); Volz (Rosenior 46), Goma (Leacock 69), Rehman (Knight 46), N Jensen (Timlin 69); Malbranque, Legwinski, C Jensen, Elrich (Boa Morte 46); Radzinski, Helguson (John 46).
