Lynn fielded an unchanged team from that which drew with Coalville the week before with new signing Charlie Clark taking a place on the bench.
Rushall, who were looking for their fourth consecutive away win, soon made it clear that they were prepared to attack and in conditions that were bad to start with and deteriorated as they game progressed, they presented a stern test with 'keeper Adam Przybek, on loan from West Bromwich Albion, launching wind assisted balls far into the Lynn half, AJ Adelekan causing problems with his long throws and Daniel Waldren giving Matt Castellan a testing time on the flank.
The visitors' first chance fell on the fourth minute with Edwin Ahenkorah putting the ball just over the bar from a Ash Sammons' corner.
Ryan Hawkins had Lynn's first effort of note on eight minutes but his shot was well over and then at the other end Orrin Pendley got his head to a free-kick which shaved the crossbar as both side struggled to contend with the strong wind.
Waldren was the next to shoot inches over getting on the end of a long cross field ball from Sammons. Lynn broke the deadlock rather against the run of play on 14 minutes.
A slip by Adelekan allowed Hawkins in and, although his shot was well save by Przybek, Hawkins was on hand to fire home the rebound.
The goal settled Lynn and Adam Marriott had a couple of chances from well worked moves before Sammons had the next goalbound effort but his shot was comfortably saved by Alex Street in the Lynn goal.
Tyler Lyttle had the next attempt for the visitors just after the half hour but his low drive was saved by Street and then Waldren had a couple of attempts.
Lynn, however, doubled their lead just before half time. Michael Gash was dragged down by Lyttle and Michael Clunan scored from the spot.
Rushall had the final chance of the half but again Waldren was thwarted by Street.
Chris Henderson has the first chance for Lynn after the restart but he shot over as the cold driving rain took hold.
The Pics never gave up in what, despite the conditions, was an entertaining game. The result, however, was put beyond doubt on 74 minutes when Rory McAuley scored with an amazing bicycle kick following a corner.
Lynn managed the second half well and although Rushall deserved a consolation for their never-say-day attitude but it was not to come. A late goal at Lowestoft for Alvechurch denied Lynn a move up into the play-off spots but Lynn should be more than happy with a clean sheet and a twelve match unbeaten run going into the Christmas period.
