Wisbech Town stunned Premier Division leaders Wroxham with a 2-0 victory at Trafford Park on Saturday.
The defeat dropped the Yachtsmen back to third in the table as the inconsistency which has stopped them taking a firm grip on the championship race returned in a miserable display.
The Fenmen had a goal ruled out when Stuart Cobb touched the ball in from an offside position, but they took the lead from the penalty spot on 40 minutes. Tom Gosling was fouled in the area by Josh Carus and James McManus converted the spot-kick.
Wroxham boss Damian Hilton made a triple substitution, but even that could not inspire the Yachtsmen and Cobb wrapped up the win for the visitors with five minutes remaining.
Lowestoft followed up the previous weekend's 5-0 success with a 7-0 drubbing of bottom club Newmarket - having started the month with a 7-0 reverse at Mildenhall.
The Jockeys had started the game well and were unfortunate not to take the lead, but Lowestoft regrouped and went ahead on 14 minutes through Russell Stock for his fifth goal in his last four appearances.
