Henry Eze who, as last man, was red carded for the second time this season.
Fortunately for Lynn Dave McTiernan saw his penalty saved by Alex Street.
Street was again the saviour on the quarter hour when he somehow managed to beat out a Matthew Brown effort.
Brown was not to be denied and on 38 minutes he was in the right place to receive a deflected ball off Ross Watson's head to tap in.

Lynn introduced leading scorer George Thomson and he got the all important equaliser with virtually his first touch when, on the 89th minute, prodded home a loose ball
to earn Lynn a point and notch his 20th goal of the season.
