Rifat Zhemaletdinov set up Grzegorz Krychowiak to draw first blood midway through the first half to set Lokomotiv on the way to a fifth straight win that put pressure on the Champions League places. Dmitry Barinov made his first start since returning from a cruciate ligament injury before being replaced in the second half. 

Vitaly Lisakovich came off the bench to chest down a low cross for Zhemaletdinov to lash home a spectacular first-time effort into the top corner. The Railroaders have closed the gap to city rivals Spartak in second to just one point ahead of their visit to Rostov tomorrow.
