Lokomotiv held as Grozny win out
Lokomotiv Moscow remained top of the Premier Liga despite being held to a goalless draw at Rubin Kazan.
The draw meant Lokomotiv faced the prospect of being knocked off top spot over the weekend, but Kuban Krasnodar could not take advantage as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Spartak Nalchik.
Kuban were on course for the three points which would have taken them to the summit when Gheorghe Bucur scored after 64 minutes, but Leandro netted to deny them three minutes from time.
In the day's other game, Blagoy Georgiev scored on the stroke of half-time to give Terek Grozny a 1-0 win over Anzhi Makhachkala.
