FC Astana recover spirits after Super Cup failure, Kairat Almaty slip to defeat in Taraz, Ordabasy Shymkent make a dream start, climbing to the league summit.

• Reigning champions FC Astana came from behind to sink Shakhter Karagandy 2-1 at the Astana Arena. Dutch midfielder Desley Ubbink capitalised on the host side's defensive error to give the Miners an early lead but Djordje Despotović and Astana captain Tanat Nuserbayev were on target for Stanimir Stoilov's men after the interval.

• Stoilov: "At half-time, I asked my players to increase pass accuracy and to push harder in the penalty area. The team had 120 minutes of heavy football three days ago and we lost that game. That's why it was important for us to win today."

• Kairat Almaty eclipsed their fresh Super Cup success gained under their new manager Alexandr Borodyuk by surprising loss at FC Taraz who finished 10th last year. Following a goalless first half, the Jambyl Region club struck twice through their rookies Ihar Zyankovich and Taras Danilyuk while Kairat could only reduce the margin late on when substitute Vitaly Li made it 2-1.

• The first goal of the season has come in Semirechye where Zhetysu Taldykorgan got a 1-1 draw against visiting FC Atyrau. It was Kazakhstan international and the Oilers' winter signing Ulan Konysbayev, on loan from Astana, who opened the season scoring 19 minutes into it with his effort from outside the box.

• FC Aktobe confirmed their current weakness as confident Ordabasy Shymkent thumped the Westerners 3-1 at home to top the league table on goal difference. Azat Nurgaliyev became the tournament's top scorer after he registered a double for the hosts.

• Newly-promoted Akzhayik Oral side couldn't get anything from outing against Tobol Kostanay, nor could Okzhetpes Kokshetau at Irtysh Pavlodar, with former Kazakhstan champions picking up slender 1-0 home wins.
