Irtysh Pavlodar end FC Astana's home winning run, Kairat Almaty net six to wreak havoc at FC Aktobe, while FC Atyrau prolong their superb run form and lift into top half of the league table.

• FC Astana squandered a host of chances against Irtysh Pavlodar as they shared the spoils 1-1 at the Astana Arena. The only time the reigning champions could beat impressive goalkeeper David Loriya occured in the 51st minute as Tanat Nuserbayev chested the ball into the net after Dmitry Shomko's cross. However, Irtysh reacted well, equalising through Samir Kerla's 69th-minute thunderous strike to turn out the first team to get an away point from Astana this term.

• A nine-point gap between top duo Astana and Irtysh remained intact and third-placed Kairat Almaty benefitted from that after their 6-2 mauling of FC Aktobe. In the process, Andrey Arshavin got a goal and set up Gerard Gohou who grabbed a double to cement his place atop the scoring charts with 12-goal total. Unbeaten in 10 across all competitions, Kairat moved within two points of Irtysh.

• Ordabasy Shymkent and Okzhetpes Kokshetau played to a 2-2 draw in South Kazakhstan, with the host side throwing away a two-goal cushion. First-half strikes from Abdulaye Diakhate and Gafurzhan Suyumbayev haven't confused Vladimir Mukhanov's men. Alibek Buleshev came off the bench five minutes into the second half to reduce the arrears four minutes later before Igor Yurin made it all square to ensure Okzhetpes stay three points clear of  Ordabasy.

• Following narrow 1-0 wins, FC Atyrau and Tobol Kostanay climbed into sixth and seventh positions in the standings, respectively. The Oilers beat hapless FC Taraz thanks to Aleksandar Damčevski's rocket of a free-kick to register their third win in three games under freshly-appointed boss Stoycho Mladenov. Kostanay club leave it late to get the points at Zhetysu Taldykorgan, a decider coming from Tomas Simkovic who scored a penalty kick in the 93rd minute.

Desley Ubbink netted twice in Shakhter Karagandy's 3-1 victory over Akzhayik Oral that opened a five-point gap between the 10th-placed Pitmen and Uralsk side.

• After the game in Karaganda, Akzhayik manager Talgat Baisufinov expressed his intention to step down: "I am confident in these lads but two last games have showed that there is lack of my motivational influence, my authority to achieve the aims. Maybe, some misunderstanding is there. I wish the team to move forward. All the negative results is my responsibility and I believe I should leave the team because it is hard to suffer such jolts."
