FC Torpedo Kutaisi beat FC Metalurgi Zestaponi 4-0 as the Georgian Premier league leaders extended their lead at the top of the table to five points on Thursday.

Comprehensive win
It only took Torpedo three minutes to find the net as Zviad Kutateladze drove home the first goal of the game. Givi Didava added a second before the break, while Georgi Shengelia and Andrei Poroshin rounded off the scoring in the second half. Second-placed FC Lokomotiv Tbilisi play FC Sioni Bolnisi on Friday night.

Derby fever
David Bolkvadze's last minute strike moved FC Merani-91 Tbilisi up to third as they beat city rivals FC Dinamo Tbilisi 1-0. Both sides finished the match with ten men after Merani-91's Zaza Tskipurishvili, and Dinamo's Mikhail Bobokhidze, were sent off after a clash in the 77th minute.

Vital winner
FC Kolkheti-1913 Poti closed the gap on fourth-placed FC Dinamo Batumi to a single point after Eldar Gvasalia's 79th-minute strike proved to be the only goal of the game.

Fine comeback
FC WIT Georgia Tbilisi came from behind to beat the bottom club FC Samgurali Tskaltubo after Saba Sultanishvili and Georgi Adamia scored the goals necessary to overhaul Georgi Mikadze's opener for Samgurali.

Metreveli double
FC Guria Lanchkhuti were comfortable 2-1 winners against FC Gorda Rustavi after a Zurab Metreveli double gave them a two-goal advantage. Revaz Gotsiridze pulled a goal back for Gorda a minute from time.
