ynn deservedly claimed all three points against a Redditch side that went into the game with a record of one goal and one point from their previous four league outings.
The Lynn line-up saw three changes following last week’s reverse against AFC Rushden & Diamonds with Aaron Jones returning to the starting line up following injury joined by Chris Henderson and Ryan Jarvis at the expense of Joe Robinson, Will Mellors-Blair and Craig Parker who dropped to the bench.
The earlier chances fell to Lynn with Henderson firing over following good link-up play between Michael Clunan and Michael Gash.
Their next attack saw a goalmouth scramble with Gash and Adam Marriott trying to get the vital tough but eventually visiting ’keeper Adam Whitehouse managed to to put the ball out for a corner.
The Red’s best chance of the first half fell to left-back George Washbourne whose low drive from distance went wide.
Lynn took the lead on 26 minutes, Frazer Blake-Tracy’s corner finding Ryan Fryatt at the far post who headed home from close range.
The goal boosted Lynn who played with style and confidence but had to wait the beginning of the second half to produce the next noteworthy chance. Jones shooting narrowly wide having got on the end of a Ryan Jarvis pass.
Ten minutes into the second half the impressive Washbourne got on the end of a long ball only to be denied by a one handed save from Alex Street.
Redditch’s Robert Evans escaped with just a caution following a crude tackle on Clunan which the Lynn played was unable to shake off and had to be replaced by Ryan Hawkins.
From the resultant free kick Blake-Tracey forced Whitehouse into a good save, tipping the ball over for a corner.
Lynn doubled their lead on 76 minutes, Marriott showing fine individual skills before striking.
Henderson curled an effort wide and, in injury time, Blake-Tracy fired wide from distance as Lynn maintained their presence among the play-off hopefuls.
