FC Astana leave it late to get a decider, Andrey Arshavin makes Kazakhstan debut against sensational Akzhayik Oral, while Irtysh Pavlodar and Tobol Kostanay win big.

• Akzhayik Oral spoiled Andrey Arshavin's bow in Kazakhstan as Kairat Almaty lost for the second time in three matches, with Vitaly Li's 57th-minute leveller being sandwiched between the two strikes the hosts produced after the restart. Freddy Coronel broke the deadlock with his penalty kick while Ruslan Valiullin's header all but won the game for Talgat Baisufinov's men in the 62nd minute. Kairat created a host of chances and could rescue at least a draw but the new Cameroonian signing Léandre Tawamba has his penalty saved by Roman Bagautdinov with seven minutes to play.

• Baisufinov: "I've said that the points are yet to come. I'd like to thank our supporters; the result was of first importance today. Our team performed well both defensively and offensively."

• Second-half goals from Roman Murtazayev, Serhiy Malyi – his second of the season – and Gogita Gogua helped league leaders Irtysh Pavlodar see off ten-man FC Atyrau 3-0 on home turf to keep safe their maximum point haul.

• FC Astana picked up a hard-fought 1-0 victory over FC Aktobe at the Astana Arena as Patrick Twumasi placed home Dmitry Shomko's cross to register a late winner. Though the defending champions have bagged nine points from possible nine, they stay second-placed on goal difference behind Irtysh.

Tomas Simkovic was the hero of Tobol Kostanay's 3-0 thumping of visiting Shakhter Karagandy. The Austrian midfielder set up Serhiy Yavorskyi's 27th-minute opener before hitting himself to double the lead seven minutes from half-time. Sergey Khizhnichenko rounded up the scoring late on, and the Pitmen were denied a consolation, with Vladimir Loginovsky saving a spot kick from Desley Ubbink on 89 minutes.

• Two goals in a three-minute span made the difference in the visitors' favour in the tense battle of FC Taraz and Okzhetpes Kokshetau. Before the interval, Marat Shakhmetov responded to Alibek Buleshev's penalty but the Southerners failed to emulate this kind of reaction when Anton Chichulin and Serge Nganbe netted for Okzhetpes to make it 3-1 deep into the second half.

• Zhetysu Taldykorgan lost 2-1 to Ordabasy Shymkent in a home encounter, Edin Junuzović and Azat Nurgaliyev striking for Bakhtiyar Baiseitov's side to top the league scoring charts jointly, having three goals each since the start of the year. Zhetysu managed to reduce the deficit in the dying moments via Didier Kadio but it was too little too late for the hosts who suffered their first defeat of the season.
