Hitman Jake Reed opened his account for the season as the Blues returned to winning ways.
The striker's 47th-minute goal was enough to ensure that Lowestoft Town bounced back from their first defeat of the season to make it two wins from two on the road so far.
A break down the left saw Fraser Blake-Tracy overlap and get to the byline before producing a cross which Reed met with his head to settle matters in Essex.
Chris Henderson and the Blues' eventual goalscorer went close with early chances in what was an end-to-end opening period.
Ady Gallagher's visitors – who lost 1-0 at home on Saturday to Tonbridge Angels – took control of the game in the second period.

That said, Blues keeper Jake Jessup was one of his side's many star performers on the night during a display which was arguably Lowestoft's best since dropping back down to the Ryman League Premier Division.
