King’s Lynn Town restored their three point lead at the top of the division thanks to a injury time 35 yard thunderbolt from substitute Josh Barrett.
Manager Tommy Widdrington named an unchanged starting line-up with just Ken Charles replacing Spencer Keller on the bench.
In an even first half it was the home side that had the better chances keeping Paul Jones busy in the Lynn goal.
Michael Gash, one of three ex-Linnets now playing for the Turbines, saw a header go over on two minutes and on 14 minutes Nathan Fox’s ball over the top caught Josh Coulson off guard and found leading scorer Jordan Nicholson who forced Jones into a good save.
Lynn’s best first half chances came from free kicks but Theo Widdrington failed to test Peter Crook as did a long range shot from Aaron Jones.
It was the Linnets’ keeper that made sure the scores were level at the break once again doing well to deny Nicholson.

Lynn introduced Ben Stephens for the second half, replacing Tai Fleming who had been both booked and in need of treatment before the break, and he had an early chance but once again it was easy for Crook who then had to deal with a Gold Omotayo header from Jordan Ponticelli’s cross.

The deadlock was broken on 50 minutes. Ponticelli had forced a fine save from Crook and the resulting corner from Michael Clunan found Coulson who headed home.
Lynn had claims for a penalty turned away after Omotayo appeared to have been pushed but their brief period of ascendancy ended on the hour when Jones failed to claim a ball clipped into the box allowing Dion Sembie-Ferris to head into the empty net.

Crook denied Lynn an almost immediate reply when he turned over an shot from Stephens and treated a 77th minute effort from Clunan similarly while Omotayo and Barrett missed chances as it looked likely the points would be shared.
With two minutes of injury time played, the ball found its way to Barrett who volleyed home a contender for goal of the season.
