Lynn deservedly returned to winning ways as they turned on the style at Victory Road.
With an unchanged starting line-up from Saturday\'s goalless draw against Stratford, the only omission was Harry Limb on the bench who was unwell.
Leiston had midfielder Dominic Docherty in for striker Jake Reed in their only change to the eleven that took the field in the 4-0 defeat of Halesowen on Saturday.
With Leiston the joint leading scorers in the division and Lynn having a potentially potent strike force, this game never looked likely to be goalless - and so it proved.
Leiston took the lead on five minutes having failed to take advantage of Alex Street's miskick three minutes earlier.
Kyle Hammond intercepted a Michael Clunan pass to put former Lynn transfer target Matt Blake through who finished confidently.
Lynn's first chance came soon after with Adam Marriott testing Marcus Garnham in the home goal whose palmed save falling to former Blue Chris Henderson who headed narrowly wide.
The impressive Marriott wasn't to be denied and scored the Lynn equaliser on 14 minutes, working his way down the left and into the penalty box before firing into Garnham’s bottom right-hand corner with the Leiston defence standing off.
Three goals in eight minutes secured the points for Lynn. On the half hour Chris Henderson headed home from close range following Clunan's volley and in the following minute poor defending allowed Ryan Hawkins time to find the net from an acute angle. Lynn went further ahead on 38 minutes when Michael Gash headed home with Marriott the provider.
The half time scoreline could have been 5-1 but for Garnham\'s acrobatic save to deny Hawkins.
Lynn continued to dominate after the break with Henderson forcing a good save from Garnham and Clunan and Ryan Jarvis having efforts off target.
Lynn completed the scoring in the 81st minute, Clunan providing Lynn's fifth from the penalty spot following a foul by Tom Bullard on Marriott.
Lynn did have the ball in the net from Craig Parker but the effort was ruled offside.
