China PR: Wuhan Three Towns three points clear of Shandong
Wuhan Three Towns retook the lead of the Chinese Super League after they breezed past Cangzhou Mighty Lions with a 4-0 victory on Sunday, powered by goals from Davidson, Nicolae Stanciu, Deng Hanwen and Marcao.
Cangzhou, however, were in much better form earlier in the week as they defeated Three Towns’ title rivals Shandong Taishan 3-2 with a hat-trick from Jose Kante. Shandong are now three points behind the leaders, but with a game in hand.
