Kairat Almaty and FC Aktobe deliver their first victories, Irtysh Pavlodar and FC Astana maintain 100 per cent start, Tobol Kostanay survive at Ordabasy Shymkent in Premier League Saturday action.

• League leaders Irtysh Pavlodar registered their fourth win in four matches after sinking Shakhter Karagandy 2-0 on the road. Irtysh defenders Georgas Freidgeimas and Semir Kerla entered the scoreboard via set pieces to prolong Pavlodar side's fantastic start to the season.

• Shakhter had the chance to come back into it but Andrey Finonchenko struck the woodwork to leave goalkeeper David Loriya unbeaten for 320 minutes of play as the Pitmen remain bottom.

• FC Taraz failed to steal points at FC Astana, Nurmat Mirzabayev's charges falling to a 2-1 loss against the second-placed reigning champions, Astana continue their perfect streak but Irtysh have a better goal difference.

• In the first half, Taraz top scorer Ihar Zyankovich responded to Tanat Nuserbayev's opener before Dmitry Shomko secured the three points for the hosts with his 81st-minute strike.

Gerard Gohou scored a solitary goal against FC Atyrau to give Kairat Almaty much-awaited win, 1-0 away from home. Kakhaber Tskhadadze who replaced Alexandr Borodyuk at the helm of Kairat earlier in midweek came up victorious in his debut in Kazakhstan.

• "Kairat have no right to be in the place they've occupied recently. I hope we'll have a run of straight wins and get the place we derserve," said Tskhadadze whose side catapulted themselves into top half of the KPL table.

• Tobol Kostanay skipper Nurbol Zhumaskaliyev came off the bench to rescue his side with a stoppage-time goal in a 2-2 draw with ten-man Ordabasy Shymkent in Southern Kazakhstan.

• Elsewhere, Okzhetpes Kokshetau beat Akzhayik Oral 2-0 to record their second successive away win, tightening the battle for third spot, while FC Aktobe ended their winless run with a 3-2 victory against Zhetysu Taldykorgan in an entertaining clash at the neutral Astana Arena.
