In midweek, Premier League's leading duo keep on marching, Kairat Almaty fail to impress in front of home crowd, FC Aktobe move into top half of the league table.

• Irtysh Pavlodar and FC Astana, while jointly topping the league, added to the current winning streaks to continue their fantastic season start. Both sides have now 15 points from possible 15 but Irtysh who conceded none in five matches stay at the very summit thanks to their goal difference.

• Irtysh eased to a 2-0 win over visiting Ordabasy Shymkent as the second-period strikes from Roman Murtazayev and Gogita Gogua, the Georgian converting from the spot, have wrapped up the encounter.

• "This was our best game in five weeks. I think we've completely outplayed our opponents though it's hard to believe we've missed so many clear-cut opportunities," noted Irtysh manager Dimitar Dimitrov.

Yuri Logvinenko headed home Serikzhan Muzhikov's corner with 12 minutes remaining to make the difference between Zhetysu Taldykorgan and Astana. The reigning champions beat the host side 1-0 to confirm their high efficiency as Stanimir Stoilov's men avoided dropping points in the league since September, 2015.

• Kairat Almaty were unable to find the back of the net, tying 0-0 with Shakhter Karagandy in their first home game of the season. Kakhaber Tskhadadze's side have been below par throughout the match which they ended a man down after Bauyrzhan Islamkhan has been dismissed for a second booking in the 75th minute.

Kostyantyn Dudchenko gave Tobol Kostanay an early lead against FC Aktobe but Yuri Utkulbayev's men managed to produce comeback that means they have sealed two wins in a row and climb to sixth place. It was Aslanbek Kakimov who levelled the things in the 20th minute before Nikita Bocharov made it 2-1 in Aktobe's favour.

• Two goals either side of half-time saw Okzhetpes Kokshetau run out 2-0 winners against FC Atyrau at the Astana Arena. Following Marat Khairullin inspired victory – with the midfielder breaking the deadlock and making Zhasulan Moldakarayev's goal – Okzhetpes settled themselves in the third place.

• FC Taraz lost to Akzhayik Oral 1-0 at home to extend their winless streak to four games. The Western club, thanks to Kuanysh Begalin's 81st-minute strike, leapfrogged Kairat in the table to claim the seventh spot.
