Dynamo Kiev came from behind to earn a 2-1 win over Obolon Kiev and stretch their advantage at the top of the Superliga.

Despite trailing to Serhiy Yavorsky's 73rd-minute strike, Artem Milevskiy levelled the scores two minutes later before Andriy Shevchenko hit what proved to be the winner ten minutes from time.

Dynamo move seven points clear of nearest challengers Shakhtar Donetsk, who also have Dnipro breathing down their necks following a 3-1 success over Metallurg Zaporizhzhya.

Goals from Ruslan Rotan, Sergey Seleznev and Volodymyr Gomenyuk put Dnipro in the driving seat with Vladimir Polevoy netting Metallurg's reply.

Metallurg Donetsk climbed to fourth on the back of a 2-1 victory at Vorskla, Henrikh Mkhitarian scoring the decider in the dying seconds.

Mladen Bartulovic and Aleksandr Maksimov shared the goals as Kryvbas beat Zarya Lugansk 4-0, while Chornomorets were 2-0 winners over Zakarpattya.
