Irtysh Pavlodar are back in the second spot, FC Aktobe extend their bad streak, FC Taraz get a rare win.

• Irtysh Pavlodar registered a 3-1 comeback victory over Zhetysu Taldykorgan to return into second position snatched by Kairat Almaty after their Thursday win over FC Astana. Vadim Borovsky's early header put Zhetysu in front before Ousman Jallow equalised in the 33rd minute for Irtysh. With Borovsky sent off on 53 minutes, the hosts pushed forward but couldn't grab the lead until the dying stages when Ignacio Herrera scored a free-kick and Roman Murtazayev killed off the game for his 10th goal of the season.

Gafurzhan Suyumbayev blasted home a thunderous drive from outside the box late in the first half to give Ordabasy Shymkent a 1-0 win over Akzhayik Oral away from home. Bakhtiyar Baiseitov's men sit fifth in the standings, three points shy of Okzhetpes Kokshetau.

• One day prior the match, Akzhayik manager Talgat Baisufinov left his post to sign a permanent deal with Kazakhstan national team. Ultimately, against Ordabasy, the Westerners were guided by interim coach Artur Avakyants.

• FC Aktobe suffered another hard blow, losing 4-1 to Okzhetpes Kokshetau in Akmola Region to slip to eighth place behind Tobol Kostanay on goal difference. It was all over inside opening 30 minutes that saw Vladimir Mukhanov's team put three past their opponents, with Alexandr Kislitsyn firing either side of Marat Khairullin's double. After the break, the sides exchanged punches through Okzhetpes veteran Alibek Buleshev and Aktobe newcomer Dmitry Golubov as Kokshetau club maintained the fourth place in the table.

Daurenbek Tazhimbetov and Malick Mané got on the scoreboard in a 2-0 win against Tobol Kostanay recorded by FC Taraz. Jambyl outfit broke their 16-game winless drought to close the gap on 11th-placed Akzhayik to one point.

• Tobol Kostanay head coach Omari Tetradze: "They defeated us courtesy of their desire, character and commitment that our team had not. It's more likely we lost this match than Taraz won it."

• Honors were even in a clash of FC Atyrau and Shakhter Karagandy, as Stoycho Mladenov's men and Jozef Vukušič's side ended with a 0-0 draw at the Munaishy Sports Complex. Shakhter remained 10th, while Atyrau retained the sixth spot, sitting two points above Tobol.
