Lynn maintained their unbeaten home record thanks to a injury time goal against a spirited Tigers side.
Manager Ian Culverhouse made three changes from the side that draw at Spennymoor with Chris Smith coming in for the suspended Rory McAuley while Jordan Richards and Sam Kelly replaced Alfie Payne and Chris Henderson who had to settle for a place on the bench.
Lynn got off to a perfect start taking the lead from the penalty spot on three minutes. Sam Kelly worked his way into the area only to be brought down by Chris Knowles. Adam Marriott did the honours from the spot for his eighth goal of the season.
Gloucester, however were threatening and were soon well ahead on the corner count against an out-of-sorts Lynn. Ryan Fryatt did well with a tackle to stop Joe Parker on eight minutes and in the next minute later Gloucester had appeals for a penalty waved away after Tom Harrison was grounded.
Ryan Jarvis then under hit a back pass to Alex Street who did well to come out to deny Joe Hanks.
Lynn’s next noteworthy effort did not come until eighteen minutes when Jordan Richards saw his shot blocked and his follow-up from the rebound well off target.
Gloucester equalised on 25 minutes when Ryan Jarvis’ misplaced back pass to Street forced the Lynn ’keeper to scramble and slip, presenting Hanks with his ninth goal of the season.
Lynn almost regained the lead just after the half hour but home keeper Zach Jeacock was on hand to block Sam Kelly’s effort at the expense of a corner which saw Fryatt’s header blocked on the line by Hanks.
Richards then had a shot off target for Lynn and at the other end Zack Kotwica’s ball into the box just failed to get the deciding touch from Jake Jackson went inches wide.
Just before the break Aaron Jones tried a shot from distance which hit the upright and then Gloucester had a free kick on the very edge of the area which was wasted.
Michael Gash had the first chance for Lynn after the restart but shot over.
Gloucester took the lead on 61 minutes when a corner evaded everyone as it crossed the goal area and found Joe Parker at the far post.
Lynn pressed for an equaliser but chances for Gash and Chris Henderson were off target, blocked or lacked the required strength. Then with 94 minutes on the clock a Henderson cross from the left was turned home by Marriott to give Lynn a point.
