The Blues were trailing at the Landor Training Centre to Jordon Garrick's heavily-deflected shot when Luke Garbutt struck from the penalty spot to level the game.
The contest looked to be heading to a 1-1 draw as Brandon Cooper was sent off for a foul on Jose Baxter and the Everton man was forced off with an injury that also reduced the visitors to 10 men as Jeffers had used all his substitutes.
But Fraser Hornby found Lavery with a cross and the forward finished emphatically in stoppage time to hand the Blues the points.
Scorers: Garbutt (74'), Lavery (91')

Our defence dealt with most things quite easily, Garbutt and Charsley were the full-backs , Foulds and for me our best player Feeney as the centre-backs. We played mainly 4-4- 2 with Broadhead and Sambou up front, Adeniran and Baxter in the middle of the four with Evans and Bowler out wide. This was the first time I've seen Bowler play for 90 minutes and I thought he grew into the game more and more as it went on , playing a part in setting up Lavery who was fouled for the penalty and creating space in the middle and giving the pass out to Hornby who crossed for Lavery to score the winner.
Lavery made quite an impact coming on for about the last 20 mins, creating a bit of space in the box resulting in the penalty and then neatly controlling Hornby's cross and smashing a wonderful shot into the roof of the net to end a spectacular move that started not far from our corner flag. Lavery has suffered from a number of injuries since he burst on the scene with the U18s. He's pacy but tiny compared to the huge Fraser Hornby but this match will do his confidence the power of good. He wanted to take the penalty he earned but Garbutt was having none of it.
A pleasing result for Jeffers too, as the first two substitutions he made turned the game.

Great to see the lads return to winning ways after the recent results.
Swansea City YouTube channel has nearly 5 mins of the game on it.

How about Jose Baxter? How did he do?

Charsley was fine, but was nearly caught out late on from a free kick when he just stood there complaining as Swansea took it quickly and ran into the wide open space where he should have been.
Right back is interesting: without Kenny, we have no obvious replacement. Markelo is okay but I understood they wanted to try him further forward not just at right back. Liverpool lost today so we've closed the gap on them after our win.
