Lynn secured a play-off spot with a deserved 2-1 win over Tamworth.
Michael Clunan was the only change to the starting line-up from the team that had lost at Banbury with Aaron Jones dropping to the bench.
Lynn dominated from the start, the Lambs penned in their own area. Clunan was the first to get a shot on goal but this was straight at Jas Singh in the visitors’ goal.
Lynn took the lead on eleven minutes when a Frazer Blake-Tracy long cross from the left was met at the far post by Ross Barrows with a downward header past Singh for his first goal for the club.
Tamworth could, and should, have been on level terms a minute later. Alex Street, under no pressure whatsoever, tried to pass the ball across the goal area to Rory McAuley. The pass was weak and anticipated by Tyrell Waite but, with the goal at his mercy, he somehow managed to miss the target from 18 yards.

Michael Gash had Lynn’s next chance on 16 minutes but his header from Clunan’s cross went wide of the far post.
Tamworth were finding it difficult to get through the Lynn midfield and defence their first shot on target not arriving until the 28th minute.
Adam Marriott was the next to have an opportunity for Lynn, taking advantage of a slip in the home defence but his low strike was turned away by the foot of Singh for a corner.
Ryan Jarvis then got on the end of a Clunan corner but his header was straight at the ’keeper.
Tamworth rallied towards the end of the half Jordan Clement managing to get a ball across the Lynn goal but had no one on hand to finish.
Street was then called on to make a double save, first to deny Kristian Green’s long range effort and then Waite’s follow-up.
Tamworth went for three at the back for the second half but this had little effect on Lynn’s midfield dominance.
The opening of the second half saw Lynn win a number of corners, McAuley heading straight at Singh and Gash, Clunan, Henderson, Jarvis and Jones all having efforts failing to beat Singh.
Tamworth’s Jack Concannon shot just wide of Street’s post on 75 minutes and on 82 minutes they equalised; Waite making amends for his first half howler with a solo run, shrugging off the attentions of Jarvis and shooting low past Street.
Blake-Tracy then had a shot which beat Singh but cannoned back off the inside of the upright but on 85 minutes Marriott managed to force the ball through a crowded centre to find Chris Henderson who placed the ball past Singh’s right and in off the upright.
Tamworth tried for a late equaliser but Lynn held on, in fact ot would have been an injustice had they been successful.
Now all eyes turn to Friday evening and Alvechurch’s visit to Stourbridge - a draw might just suit Lynn’s chances of finishing the season in second spot.
