On paper, going into this game, an away point at Redditch looked a likely outcome. Seven league games had seen Lynn undefeated whilst Redditch had recorded just the one loss and had managed a 4-4 draw against league leaders Kettering during the week.
In reality, however, Lynn should have come away with a comfortable win as they dominated this game for long periods.
The Lynn line-up showed a few changes following last Saturday's draw with Aaran Jones returning after injury, Matt Castellan making his first league start of the season and Craig Parker given a place with Ryan Hawkins, Jordan Richards and Chris Henderson dropping to the bench.
The first half saw Lynn in control, Craig Parker having the first chance, heading wide from Jones' centre.
Jones was again the provider two minutes later, this time Adam Marriott's shot producing a good save from home 'keeper Reece Francis. The theme was set for the remainder of the half.
Marriott had a shot that was deflected away with the keeper beaten and Ryan Jarvis had an effort blocked. Michael Gash then saw an effort blocked but three minutes later the home side eventually gave way to the relentless pressure when Michael Clunan smashed home from the edge of the area to give Lynn the lead on 31 minutes. Just before the break Alex Street was called into action to deny Robert Evans' long range shot.
Redditch made a couple of substitutions at half time and although this did not stop Lynn's overall control of the game they lacked the fluency of the first half. Substitute Michael Nelson had an early shot for Redditch which was deflected away for a corner while for Lynn Frazer Blake-Tracy had an effort which was received the same result. Lynn looked likely to come a away the three points and move to fourth in the table but in the final minute substitute and new signing Mitchell Piggon collected a low ball into the box and his turn and shot beat the stranded Street meaning Lynn, with just the one point, had to settle for seventh.
