IT MUST have been a long trip back to Norfolk for the luck­less Linnets who re­ally should have got more from this game.

How­ever, Lynn were left to rue a missed first-half penalty from skip­per Michael Clu­nan and more profli­gacy af­ter the break be­fore they suc­cumbed to their for­tu­nate hosts.

In fair­ness Gareth Ste­wart was at full stretch as he de­nied Clu­nan from the spot with a fan­tas­tic save on 17 min­utes, but the Ter­ras made the most of this let-off to forge ahead just be­fore the half-hour when Ben Thom­son played in Bran­don Good­ship.

The vis­i­tors re­sponded well and Ryan Hawkins smashed the foot of the post from a 25yard free-kick. And they were de­servedly back on terms mid­way through the sec­ond pe­riod as Michael Gash linked with Craig Parker be­fore slot­ting home.

How­ever, it was some­what against the run of play when the hosts edged in front again eight min­utes later when Josh Carmichael picked out Good­ship, who struck com­pe­tently past Street for his brace.

Fur­ther un­ex­pected gloss ar­rived in the 84th minute when Char­lie Davis’s 25-yard vol­ley gave Street no chance, leav­ing the Linnets to work out how they fin­ished los­ing.

STAR MAN: Gareth Ste­wart (Wey­mouth) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT:
