Swans slipped to one place above the Ryman Premier relegation zone with an incredible 14th defeat in 16 matches.
But this was no meek surrender as Johnson Hippolyte’s revamped side bossed their clash at Hendon for long periods and, but for misfortune at both ends of the pitch, would have got a result.
Only four of the side who played under Nicky Forster were in the starting line-up , Tommy Brewer coming in at right-back and doing an excellent job, while Ahmed Abdulla made a welcome return from injury in midfield and Pat Cox was again the lone striker, supported by Ryan Gondoh.
The fourth player, keeper Jack Turner, was beaten twice by Tony Taggart at awful times for the team to give away goals.
