Swansea manager Michael Laudrup is sure spot luck will lift team

Swansea manager Michael Laudrup admits his side will face Fulham tomorrow with a lingering a sense of injustice from their draw with Stoke.

The Swans were denied a 3-2 win over the Potters thanks to a stoppage-time penalty from Charlie Adam, the third time in four games Swansea had conceded an equaliser in added time.

Referee Robert Madley adjudged that Wayne Routledge had handled in the box, a decision which has left Laudrup in a rage.

"It's been there for weeks," Laudrup said. "We've had other games where our opponent has scored very late, in different ways but when it happened like it did...

"Coming back from 2-0 down for that to happen, then to not have a game for two weeks, was like a knock to the head, but what does not kill us makes you stronger. We were so frustrated and angry and it would have been good to play three days later."

Laudrup, linked with a move for Blackpool's Tom Ince, will be without injured pair Michu and Pablo Hernandez tomorrow.
