A 40th minute penalty from Adam Marriott was enough to give Lynn their first victory of the year.
Lynn made eight changes from the team that lost to Hornchurch, only one being forced upon them with Rory McAuley suspended.
It was something of a strange game with the Spitfires pressuring the Lynn defence, particularly in the second half, but home keeper Joe McDonnell pulling off some smart saves to keep the margin to just one goal.
The first 39 minutes of little consequence. Michael Gash spurned two good chances to put Lynn ahead first putting a shot wide and then heading wide from a corner while for the home side Ben House had a volley off target.
The nearest anyone came to scoring was Lynn keeper Archie Mair whose wind assisted kick caught out McDonnell who back pedalled enough to tip the ball onto the bar and away for a corner.
Then came the penalty. Alex Kiwomya went on a run down the right, reached the penalty area and pulled the ball back to cut inside defender Michael Green only to be felled by the in-rushing Ben House on the edge of the area.
A close call but referee Daniel Lamport pointed to the spot and Marriott sent his kick underneath the diving McDonnell.
Kiwomya nearly made it two just before the break but McDonnell was equal to the shot.
The second half, with the wind and rain behind them, saw periods of home pressure but resolute Lynn defending.
Lynn had chances to increase their lead, Kyle Callan-McFadden's header forcing Jack Payne into one of two goal line clearances from the defender while Marriott and Sonny Carey both forced good saves from the home keeper.
All credit to the Lynn defence who stood up well against long balls into the area. The nearest the home side could manage was a ball from Dan Smith which was allowed to run across goal but substitute Sam Smart was unable to convert.

Aldershot's FA Trophy win on Saturday means that Lynn currently have no fixture on 6th February, they already had a blank Saturday on the 13th when Macclesfield were to be the opposition.
