CSKA's First Loss Lets Loko Leap Into Lead

CSKA Moscow suffered its first defeat of the season to lose top spot in the Russian Premier League as it went down 3-2 to Saturn RenTV on Saturday.

Saturn sub Andrei Movsesyan scored a dramatic winner with a diving header in the 90th minute after a cross from Moldova international Radu Rebeja.

Former Russia fullback Igor Yanovsky had given CSKA the lead after 20 minutes but Moldova international striker Sergei Rogachev equalized less than a minute later.

CSKA captain Sergei Semak again put his side ahead after an hour only for Pyotr Bystrov to level.

The result ended CSKA's six-game unbeaten streak as last year's runner-up Lokomotiv Moscow moved to the top with a 3-0 win over city rival Dynamo.

It was the first defeat for newly appointed Dynamo coach Viktor Prokopenko as his team was brought down to earth after thrashing lowly Rostselmash Rostov 5-0 six days ago.

Nigerian striker James Obiorah opened the scoring after eight minutes and Ruslan Pimenov added two more either side of halftime.

Pimenov's second, a right-foot volley into the top corner, strengthened his claim for a recall to the Russian team.

Loko goalie Sergei Ovchinnikov, out of the Russia World Cup squad following a spat with team coach Oleg Romantsev, had another strong game with his sixth clean sheet in seven matches.

On Friday, a lucky bounce helped champion Spartak Moscow to a 2-1 win over cross-town rival Torpedo.

A shot by Ukrainian midfielder Eduard Tsykhmeistruk from the edge of the penalty box hit a defender and bounced over sprawling Ukraine international goalkeeper Valery Vorobyov to give third-placed Spartak the points.

But the win proved costly as Spartak's Russian internationals Yury Kovtun and 18-year-old striker Dmitry Sychyov were forced off with injuries.
