Zhaonan Li grabbed the winner two minutes from time just moments after Han Peng had seemingly snatched a point for the visitors.

Christopher Katongo opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 48 minutes but it needed Li's late heroics to snap a three-game losing run and move Henan two points from safety.

Shanxi Zhongxin, who occupy the last position of saftey, drew 2-2 at home to Changchun Yatai thanks to a 90th-minute leveller from Anselmo.

Changchun twice went ahead through Wenzhao Zhang (18) and Edixon Perea (39) but both goals were cancelled out by Brazilians, first by Johnny (27) and then Anselmo late on.
