Saturday 30th November
Lynn eventually brushed aside the challenge of the side second from bottom in the table although it was the visitors who took the lead on 21 minutes.
Lynn started brightly with two good chances in the opening six minutes - both Jake Jones and Andy Hall going wide.
Marc Goodfellow saw his free kick diverted for corner by visiting keeper Brain on 13 minutes but Rangers took the lead on 21 minutes against the run of play
when Sean Kinsella's free-kick was headed home inadvertently by George Thomson .
Stafford's lead lasted less than a minute when Rob Duffy smashed home from three yards.
Play became scrappy with Stafford coming more into the game as chances fell to both sides. George Thomson jinked his way to about 20 yards but then shot wide while
Louis Harris tried to take advantage of Alex Street being off his line but his 35-yard volley dipped over the woodwork.
Kinsella then put over for Stafford and Lynn replied with a Jones' effort hitting the post with Hall seeing his attempt on the rebound blocked and
Goodfellow shooting wide just before half time.
The second half opened with both 'keepers in action early on but it was Lynn who took the lead on 50 minutes when Ryan Fryatt headed home Goodfellow's
corner from three yards.
