Nchanga Rangers poor form continued on saturday when they lost 2-1 away to National Assembly on Saturday at Woodlands Stadium in Lusaka.
The Chingola side arrived in Lusaka under a dark cloud following a pay dispute with speculation that they had not been paid for three months.
However, Assembly who also have issues of their own failed to take full advantage of an unmotivated Nchanga in this otherwise dull Week 8 game.
All three goals came after the hour mark when Fashion Sakala put Nchanga ahead in the 63rd minute.
The lead lasted just three minutes after Gift Lukwesa headed in the equaliser before Peter Mwangani fired in the winner in the 80th minute.
Elsewhere, Konkola Blades bounced back to winning ways after beating Green Eagles 2-1 away in Choma.
Eric Chomba and Happy Kaunda scored for Blades while Mwila Phiri netted eagles consolation.
At Edwin Emboela Stadium in Lusaka, Perry Mutapa picked up his second win after promoted Lusaka Dynamos beat bottom placed Nakambala Leopards 1-0 courtesy of a Thomas Kunda goal.
