The Swans named a strong side with the likes of Leon Knight and Akinfenwa up front while Darren Way also played the whole 90 minutes after spending the last 8 months out with an injury.
We began the match well and scored within the first minute. Youngster, Chris Jones was impressive down the right wing and he sent in a cross to Knight who finished well from 12 yards out.
6 minutes later and Akinfenwa doubled our lead thanks to a pass from Thomas Butler.
The Robins then got back into the game with two goals in 8 minutes to go level again.
On 13 minutes, Foley had an easy tap in to make it 2-1 and 8 minutes later trialist Sankoh got the easier.
The Swans regained the lead just two minutes later though, thanks to an own goal from James Baldwin.
Oakes made a few good saves in the Swansea goal but he wasn't helped by some dodgy defending.
He saved a penalty after Akinfenwa handled inside the area.
We then went 2 goals in front early in the second half. Way passed out wide to Knight and his cross was met by Butler who scored an excellent goal with a diving header.
With around half an hour left, Cheltenham scored again to bring it back to 4-3, but Swansea held out for the win.
