Ghana international Frank Acheampong increased his goal tally for Chinese side Tianjin Teda in their victory over Dalian Yifang in the Super League on Wednesday.

The attacker was among the scorers as the Tigers registered a 3-1 home win at Tianjin Olympic Center Stadium.

It was his 17th goal in 25 league games - all starts - this season.

Interestingly, it was the visitors who broke the deadlock of the midweek game through Nyasha Mushekwi two minutes into the second half.

Xie Weijun, however, restored parity for Tianjin 10 minutes later, before Zhao Yingjie made it 2-0 in the 74th minute.

It looked like the closing score but Acheampong netted in the first minute of injury time to make it 3-1.

Despite the win, Teda still occupy the 15th position on the table, three places below Yifang.

Acheampong, who joined the Chinese side from Belgian giants Anderlecht last year, will be eyeing more goals when they play Guangzhou Evergrande on Sunday.
