Lynn produced one of the shocks of the First Round of the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over League Two Port Vale.
Port Vale, occupying a play-off place and having won their last three league outings, looked to be leaving nothing to chance by fielding their strongest team available.
Lynn made four changes to the starting eleven that defeated Woking last week with Ryan Jarvis, Jamar Loza, Simon Power and Dayle Southwell coming in for the cup-tied Kairo Mitchell while Cameron King, Sonny Carey and Adam Marriott had to settle for a place on the bench.
The first half was a high on energy but a scrappy affair with passes going astray from both sides.
Lynn owed much to the Norwich City on-loan duo of Power and Archie Mair in a frenetic first half.
Power's speed gave Leon Legge a tough time, particularly after Vale captain picked up a booking.
Power was the first to test the home 'keeper Scott Brown from distance while at other end Scott Burgess's shot hit his own player and Leon Legge headed wide and what was going to prove a frustrating afternoon for the home side who created plenty of opportunities but could not get through a determined defence and a magnificent Mair.
Lynn came closest to breaking the first half deadlock on 25 minutes but Power's shot only found the side netting.
The home side began to dominate but Lynn looked dangerous on the break.
Mair did well to deny Conlon who three minutes later, turned provider for David Amoo whose header went straight into the arms of the Lynn 'keeper who was on hand to deny Amoo again on 37 minutes.
Just before the break it was Dave Worrall's curving ball that was somehow kept out by Mair.
Lynn had survived a gruelling first half and the question was whether they could do the same in the second against the full timers.
If anything, Vale were even more in dominant after the restart.
On 55 minutes Mair came to Lynn's rescue again as he blocked Mitchell Clark's effort with his body.
Vale had the ball in the next after Mair could only parry Conlon's shot and Worrall was on hand to finish but the effort was ruled offside.
Lynn introduced leading scored Adam Marriott and Sonny Carey in place of Power and Loza as the home side continued to create chances and Lynn thwart them.
Then a moment of magic from Marriott on 81 minutes as he weaved around a number of challenges, took a slight stumble which some players might have made more of, recovered and pull the ball back across the box.
At first it looked as if the ball had been pulled too far back but the steaming in came Carey who blasted the ball home.
A few nervous moments followed but Lynn held on for their place in Monday's draw.
