League leaders Bunyodkor Tashkent kept their unbeaten run in the Oliy Liga going with a 4-0 win at Bukhara FC.

Anvar Soliev gave the visitors the lead after two minutes and the comfortable victory was wrapped up with further goals from Victor Karpenko, Akmal Shorakhmedov and Jasur Hasanov.

Fellow capital-club Pakhtakor Tashkent stayed six points adrift of Bunyodkor after coming from behind to beat Andijan 5-1 at home.

Yuriy Tselikh opened the scoring for Andijan but Stanislav Andreev equalised two minutes later before Eldor Tadjibaev gave Pakhtakor the lead. A brace from Sherzodbek Karimov and a fifth from Kakhi Makharadze gave the hosts an easy three points.

Nasaf Quarsi lost ground on the leaders after a 57th-minute Dilyaver Abibullaev goal gave Samaqand-Dynamo FC a surprise 1-0 win.

Sogdiana Jizzah remain bottom of the table after a 3-2 defeat at home to Shurtan Guzar. Igor Taran and Shakhboz Erkinov had given Shurtan a seemingly comfortable three-goal lead but a four-minute double from Bahodyr Pardaev meant the visitors had to hold on for the final 15 minutes.

Navbakhor Mamangan came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at Neftchi Fergana. Alisher Halikov scored a 12th-minute penalty for Fergana but Abdulaziz Sulanov equalised on the half-hour to earn tenth-placed Navbakhor a share of the spoils.
