FC Astana grab top spot, Kairat Almaty suffer another slump, Okzhetpes Kokshetau continue to beat the odds in what was a thrilling matchday in KPL.

• Former AS Monaco and Dynamo Kyiv offensive midfielder Lukman Haruna marked his home debut for FC Astana with a decider against resilient Tobol Kostanay in a game that saw defending champions secure a narrow 1-0 win at the Astana Arena.

• Astana registered their sixth victory in a row (and 12th when taking into account the 2015 season) to climb two points clear of Irtysh Pavlodar who failed to win for the first time since the start of the campaign. With a maximum of 18 points under their belt, Astana dominate the league ahead of their trip to Irtysh in the Week 7.

• It was FC Aktobe who managed to stop perfect Irtysh's run as Samat Smakov responded to the first-half strike from Gogita Gogua in an emotional 1-1 draw. Both goals came from penalty spot, with the Red and Whites clinching a late equaliser to end David Loriya's 586-minute streak without conceding in league matches.

• Meanwhile, Okzhetpes Kokshetau extended their winning run to four matches – three of them on the road – by defeating Shakhter Karagandy 1-0 in Temirtau. Oleksandr Chyzhov placed the ball home in a set-piece situation on the half-hour mark to help Vladimir Mukhanov's men tighten their grip on the third spot.

• Kairat Almaty have tasted another portion of frustration, falling 1-0 at Ordabasy Shymkent. The host side were competitive and aggressive enough to find a winner through Filip Kasalica who was clinical taking advantage of an awful mistake from Kairat backline ten minutes after the restart. Kairat slipped to ninth, Ordabasy now sit fourth.

• Ordabasy head coach Bakhtiyar Baiseitov: "I thanked my players, they stuck with our tactic despite the difficulties. As for Kairat, in upcoming six weeks, they are going to get the upper hand over those teams that are above them now, you'll see that".

• Elsewhere, Zhetysu Taldykorgan overpowered FC Taraz 2-1 to claim their first win in 2016, while FC Atyrau also ended their own winless streak by beating Akzhayik Oral 2-0 in the Western Kazakhstan Derby.
