The visitors fell behind to Michael Higdon's header but fought back with goals from Conor Newton and Lewis Guy and appeared to be heading for a victory.
But James McFadden had the final say with a 25-yard free-kick into the top corner six minutes from time.
Despite the late setback, Lennon admitted he thoroughly enjoyed the fixture.
"You could probably dig out the same reports you have done from the last couple of years," he said.
"They are always fixtures I look forward to and once again both sets of players and supporters brought a great deal to the game.
"It was thoroughly entertaining - goalmouth action, quality goals - and football certainly won here again."
