Lynn managed to find new depths in the third home league game without victory. Whereas in previous matches they had failed to put away their chances, against the Glassboys they just didn't create them and had to wait until the 39th minute for their first corner.

Hopes of an improvement in form might have been in pre-match minds with the return of Michael Clunan and Michael Gash from injury while a former Linnet, Greg Mills, was in the Stourbridge line-up having joined them from Darlington in August.
Such optimism, however, did not materialise in a shaky start with Lynn giving away the ball too easily, not that the quality from either side was that great in a scrappy opening.
Luke Benbow, for the visitors, was the first to have a sight at goal with shots on three minutes and again on ten but Alex Street dealt with both.
Paul McCone had a header just over on 21 minutes as the Glassboys still looked the most likely to score in a game that was lacking any quality.
Shortly after Gash received an injury which he was unable to run off.
Lynn had slightly more into the game as the first half progressed but passes were overhit, crosses failed to get a final touch and those efforts on target were straight at 'keeper James Wren.
Stourbridge may have had hopes of a penalty when Mills was grounded but referee Mr Burnham thought otherwise and Mills was booked for diving. The same player was involved later on when he appeared to deliberately handle the ball in a Lynn attack but once again no spot kick was forthcoming.

The 43rd minute goal was an oasis of quality in a disappointing first half, a neat build up resulted in Aaron Forde drilling home from the edge of the box.

The introduction of Nathan Stewart for the dead-legged Gash five minutes after the restart introduced a degree of pace and he did manage a shot which hit the side netting and Clunan had an effort high after his initial free kick had hit the wall.
Stourbridge had the chance to kill the game off but Benbow saw his shot save by the legs of Street.
