Lynn seem to have the ability to turn on the style when few people give them a chance and, just like the visit of league leaders Torquay, Lynn proved equal to their opponents and it took a strike from the top drawer to decide the game in favour of the visitors. Jake Reeves scoring from some 30 yards.
Manager Ian Culverhouse made four changes to the starting eleven that lost to Bromley - one enforced as it was revealed Aaran Jones will be out for 3-6 months with a ruptured Achilles injury picked up in training.
In came Ryan Jarvis, Ross Barrows, Kairo Mitchell and Sonny Carey while Alex Kiwomya and Michael Gash joined Adam Marriott in a strong attack minded bench.
There was no place for Sam Kelly.
Notts were unchanged from the side that defeated Dagenham & Redbridge apart from Luke Pilling, making his league debut, taking over in goal from the suspended Sam Slocombe, a move for which the Magpies might feel thankful.
Lynn weren't over awed by their in-form opposition but the visitors began to dominate after a fairly even opening.
Ruben Rodrigues had a couple of early efforts, the first blocked by Chris Smith and the next straight into the arms of Archie Mair.
That set the pattern for the first half, the Magpies created the chances but the Linnets rear-guard was equal to it.
A Jordan Barnett free kick went just wide of Mair's post and Connell Rawlinson saw his header scrambled off the line but Mair didn't have a serious save to make.
Lynn had their moments Sonny Carey creating a chance for Mitchell and then having a shot of his own.
The best chances the home side had in the half came just before the break, Pilling turning Mitchell's shot away for a corner and from the resulting kick he cleared Rory McAuley's header off the line.
All Lynn's hard work was undone in the 54th minute with Reeves belting home from distance giving Mair no chance.
The goal gave County confidence and they looked for another with Jimmy Knowles shooting across goal.
Looking to attack as the best form of defence Lynn introduced Adam Marriott and Michael Gash soon followed by Alex Kiwomya and the remainder of the game belonged to Lynn.
Gash got the best out of Pilling who somehow managed to get his fingertips to turn the ball away and then another shot went across goal as the Magpies defended in depth - showing why they have only conceded five away goals in the league this season.
