The game exploded into life late in the second half after Andy Robinson rifled in a superb 73rd-minute free-kick from fully 25 yards to give Swans the lead.
Five minutes later a two-footed lunge on Swansea substitute Andrea Orlandi by Havant full-back Brett Poate resulted in a red card from referee Stuart Atwell.
