Prolific striker Lee Trundle was once again on the scoresheet for the Welshman, poaching his ninth goal of the season after 33 minutes.
The visitors battled gamely to get back into the contest, but veteran Kevin Nugent ensured The Swans took all three points by adding a second with six minutes remaining.
Big-spending Hull took advantage of Oxford's 2-0 reverse at Doncaster - a game settled by strikes in either half from Tim Ryan and Paul Green - to leapfrog into second.
Peter Taylor's men triumphed at mid-table Rochdale after two goals in four second half minutes.
Stuart Green opened the scoring for The Tigers after 63 minutes, and former Blackburn Rovers hit-man Ben Burgess settled matters shortly afterwards.
Yeovil continued their excellent recent form by recording their fifth win on the bounce.
The Glovers recorded a narrow 1-0 away victory at high-flying Mansfield, with Kirk Jackson's strike three minutes before the interval proving decisive.
York City climbed up to fourth spot following their home victory over Bristol Rovers.
All the goals at Bootham Crescent arrived in an action-packed first half. Lee Bullock edged the hosts ahead just before the quarter hour mark, and after Junior Agogo had tied matters up, Aaron Wilford netted what proved to be the winner 11 minutes before the break.
Dave Kitson was the hero for Cambridge United, as a goal in each half from the lanky hit-man set up his side for a comfortable 3-0 victory at Bobby Gould's Cheltenham Town, Lloyd Opara added a late third.
Darlington twice came from behind to earn a share of the spoils at Torquay United.
Craig Liddle cancelled out Steve Woods' early opener for The Gulls, and after David Graham had restored the hosts' lead, Ian Clark popped up 17 minutes from time to ensure honours ended even.
Lincoln City came from behind to emerge victorious at Kidderminster, Lloyd Dyer put The Harriers ahead on 11 minutes but efforts from Marcus Richardson (32) and Richard Butler (43) were enough for The Red Imps.
Northampton Town endured a frustrating afternoon against Macclesfield Town as the game ended goalless at the Sixfields Stadium.
Boston United recorded just their second win of the season courtesy of a lone strike from former York City forward Peter Duffield against Bury.
Leyton Orient left it very late to take something from their home clash with Scunthorpe as Jabo Ibehre popped up in injury time to equalise Richard Kell's first half opener and relieve some of the pressure on Paul Brush.
The battle of the bottom two ended all square as Carlisle fought back from two down to deny Southend United.
The Shrimpers exploded into life midway through the first period with two goals inside a minute from David McSweeney and Leon Constantine.
However, Carlisle responded well in the second half, and strikes from Kevin Henderson and Richie Foran ensured The Cumbrians left Roots Hall with a point.
