Leaders Rubin held by Tomsk
Struggling Tomsk held leaders Rubin Kazan to a goalless draw.
Rubin could not find a way past the Tomsk defence, but still extended their lead over Spartak Moscow to seven points. Spartak lost 2-1 at city rivals Saturn yesterday.
CSKA Moscow pulled to within a point of Spartak thanks to a three-goal second-half blitz against Dinamo Moscow.
After a goalless first period, Pavel Mamaev, Milos Krasic and Guilherme struck to give CSKA a 3-0 win.
Elsewhere, Zenit St. Petersburg won 1-0 at Krylya Sovetov, while Amkar Perm beat Terek Grozny by the same scoreline.
