Two Red Cards and two second half goals see the Swans suffer another defeat.
The Swans under new manager Johnson Hippolyte started strongly but didn’t turn up in the second half. With four new players Drax had shown he means business and all showed power and class but it was Swans keeper Jack Turner who excelled.
Pat Cox tried in vain up front but the loss of Jack Bennett for handling on the line sealed the fate of the Swans once reduced to 10 men. Turner saved the spot kick but was up against a talented Angels side.
A big disappointment was to see Jeremy Boakye rush in to push an Angels player fiercely and be dismissed despite being on the field for only 5 minutes.

Four new players couldn’t stop Staines Town from defeat at in-form Tonbridge Angels on Saturday.
Despite a spirited performance under the watchful eye of new boss Johnson Hippolyte, they lost 2-0 after holding out until the last 15 minutes.
Hippolyte does not officially take charge until after the game , but would have take some heart from the battling display which featured new signings Adrian Clifton, Devante McKain, Chinua Cole and DeReece Vanderhyde.
Tonbridge, 5th in the Ryman Premier, proved stern opposition as expected but the Swans were still level at half time, thanks to three outstanding saves from Jack Turner.
But within minutes of the second half, the game changed dramatically when Jack Bennett was adjudged to have handled on the line and sent off.
