Relegation battling Konkola Mine Police and Red Arrows enhanced their survivals hopes after picking up points their respective games in a doubleheader at Konkola Stadium in Chililabombwe on Sunday.
Mine Police beat 2-1 National Assembly in dramatic fashion while Arrows drew with Nchanga Rangers.
Arrows picked up a scoreless away draw with Nchanga to see them move one place up from 14th to 13th in the bottom four.
Mine Police meanwhile, shocked Assembly after rallying from one-down in the last ten minutes to score two late goals to pick up their first league win since June 8.
Musonda Kapembwa put Assembly ahead in the 82nd minute when he beat Mine Police goalkeeper Evans Chewe just two minutes after coming on as a substitute.
Then just before the dust could settle from all jumping for joy after the goal, Assembly then had coach George Kapembwa was sent off by referee Jan Sikazwe.
And coach Kapembwa’s immediate absence from the technical area was evidently felt by Assembly.
Mine Police equalised in the 88th minute after defender Warren Kunda pounced on a poorly cleared free kick to level matters to score his second goal of the season.
Emmanuel Phiri blasted in a stoppage time winner to hand the Chililabombwe side its third win of the season.
