Georgian Premier League leaders FC Torpedo Kutaisi were held to a 1-1 draw by FC Dinamo Tbilisi at the Torpedo stadium on Sunday.

Poroshin on target
Andrei Poroshin put Torpedo in front on the stroke of half-time and maximum points looked in the bag for the hosts until Mikheil Bobokhidze equalised in the 89th minute. Torpedo's lead at the top was cut to three points when second-placed FC Lokomotiv Tbilisi beat FC Gorda Rustavi 1-0 at home.

Samgurali make up ground
Suliko Davitashvili claimed the only goal of the match in the 55th minute to boost his side's title challenge. The defeat for Gorda gave bottom club FC Samgurali Tskaltubo a chance to make up ground, and they did with a 1-0 win over FC Merani-91 Tbilisi. Goal difference now separates the sides after Kakhaber Dzhanashia struck five minutes into the second half.

Sioni victorious
FC Sioni Bolnisi claimed a narrow 1-0 home victory over third-placed FC Dinamo Batumi, thanks to a 15th-minute goal from David Khuchua. FC Kolkheti-1913 Poti kept up the pressure on the league's top clubs with a comprehensive 3-0 at home to FC WIT Georgia Tbilisi. Hamlet Tsivtsivadze opened the scoring for the home side in the 15th minute, Kakhaber Daushvili made it two on the half-hour mark and Ilia Kutidze completed the rout with virtually the last kick of the game.

Vital points
FC Metalurgi Zestaponi earned three vital points away at FC Guria Lanchkhuti with a 3-0 victory. Zviad Endeladze gave the visitors the lead just before the break before Zviad Kraveishvili doubled their advantage twenty minutes into the second period.
