FOOTBALL: There was a party atmosphere at The Walks on Tuesday as fans were welcomed back to the ground for the first time since December, writes Lewis Hawkins.
However, a second-half equaliser from Solihull Moors left them deflated and means Lynn will need at least a point from their final match tomorrow to avoid finishing bottom of the truncated National League table, if rivals Barnet continue their winning run.
The atmosphere matched a sparkling Linnets performance as every attack was met with loud cheers.
Ross Barrows put the hosts 1-0 up after 30 minutes with a thumping header from Alex Babos’ corner.
Lynn dominated the first half but Solihull clawed their way back after the break and levelled when Adam Rooney tapped the ball into an open net.
The Linnets finished on the wrong side of an epic 5-3 score-line on Saturday at play-off hopefuls Wrexham.
The Welshmen opened the scoring with Luke Young’s penalty before a superb free-kick from Sonny Carey brought the scores level. Jordan Davies scored a free-kick of his own to restore the home lead and Gold Omotayo made it 3-1 at half-time. The Linnets were playing well and were rewarded on the hour mark when Simeon Jackson pulled one back, although Jordan Ponticelli soon added another goal for the hosts.
Jackson got his second to raise Lynn hope before the scoring was ended with Omotayo getting his second.
• Lynn have confirmed two new signings ahead of the 2021/22 season. Ethan Coleman, who has spent the last two months on loan at The Walks has agreed to join on a permanent basis. Box-to-box midfielder Munashe Sundire has also joined from National League South side St Albans City.
