Lynn's disappointing start continued with defeat at Lowestoft and once again it was their poor finishing and a general lack of a cutting edge that let them down.


With Michael Gash still sidelined, their problems weren't helped with Michael Clunan, the leading scoring with three of their four goals, ruled out with injury.
Toby Hilliard was relegated to the substitutes' bench with Valter Da Rocha and Harry Limb getting their first starts of the season.
The Trawler Boys made just one change from the team that won on Saturday with Ben Fowkes coming into the starting line-up and it was his 13th minute goal that decided the match.
Lowestoft started brightly with Fowkes seeing an 8th minute shot blocked for a corner and on ten minutes former Lynn trialist Kieran Higgs saw his shot initially spilled by Alex Street but the Lynn keeper managed to
hold the ball at the second attempt. Then on 13 minutes came the goal. Armani Schaar pulled the ball back to ex-Linnet Jacek Zielonka whose shot was parried by Street and Fowkes was on hand to finish from close in.
Lynn could and should have equalised on 23 minutes when Rocha and Ryan Hawkins were involved in a move that set up Limb who, from two yards, failed to connect with the ball and tamely tapped it to a grateful Elvjis Putnins in the home goal.
Lynn were getting more into the game but despite playing three up front Putnins was not troubled. Rocha put a curling shot high and wide and when Craig Parker tried his luck with a volley from Frazer Blake-Tracy's whipped in ball, Putnins saved.
The second half was a continuation of the later stages of the first with Lynn applying the pressure but never really hurting the opposition.
Manager Simon Clark introduced Hilliard and Nathan Stewart five minutes after the restart but despite upping the tempo there was little reward.
A Hilliard cross looked dangerous but there was no one close enough to apply the finishing touch and
Rocha had another shot go wide. Lowestoft were happy to sit back and absorb the pressure, Stewart had an effort deflected just wide as the Trawler Boys held on.
What a difference a year makes. After five games last season Lynn were sitting third, undefeated with four wins and a draw. This season it is four points from five games, their worst start to the season since reforming.
