Andre Senghor was on target twice as Nei Mongol Zhongyou cruised to a 3-2 victory over Xinjiang Tianshan in Sunday’s China League One clash.
Senghor had gone five games without a goal, but against Fernando Cipitria’s men, he rediscovered his scoring form.
His 39th-minute strike put his side ahead before Stephano Pinho levelled scores before the half-time break.
Wang Bo’s 65th-minute effort gave Zhongyou the lead before Senghor’s second goal extended the advantage eight minutes from full time.
Pinho completed his brace in the game’s closing stages, however, it was not enough to aid their comeback.
Victory for Nei Mongol Zhongyou place them in second position with 40 points from 22 encounters.
They face seventh-placed Zhejiang Greentown as they continue their chase for promotion.
