The 29-year-old scored a brace to kill off the resistance of the Tigers who had held out against the two-time S-league Champions.
With the 2 goals, it also meant Qiu Li has drawn level with Mendy at the top of the goalscorers list at 15 a piece.
But all that also came at a price as Qiu Li was taken off with 4 minutes to go as he re-injured himself.
Now Stags coach Vorawan admitted he might have to let Qiu Li rest a bit more and the forward might not even be on the bench against Albirex Niigata (S) next week in the LIVE Wednesday game.
At this moment though, it still appear to be worth it - until the Albirex game - as the Stags grabe second and with a win next week they can overtake Etoile FC, for 24 hours at least.
