MOSCOW, May 2 (RIA Novosti)
Zakhari Sirakov's injury-time strike secured Amkar Perm a 2-2 draw against FC Krasnodar in the Russian Premier League on Wednesday.
The visitors took the lead on 14 minutes through Armenian striker Yura Movsisyan, who burst through one-on-one with goalkeeper Sergei Narubin and arrowed the ball into the far corner for his 13th of the season.
Midfielder Vitaly Grishin leveled it for Amkar five minutes before the break, hitting into an open net after Alexander Kolomeitsev had drawn out Krasnodar goalkeeper Nukri Revishvili.
Brazilian forward Joaozinho put the visitors ahead on 83 minutes, diverting Movsisyan's pass beyond Narubin from close range.
But Bulgarian defender Sirakov had the last word for Amkar, sealing the draw from a tight angle in the dying minutes.
With both teams anchored in mid-table and just three games remaining, little was at stake for either.
Krasnodar, in eighth overall and top of the relegation group, go to 60 points from 42 games. Amkar in ninth move to 52 points.
Earlier Wednesday, relegated bottom side Spartak Nalchik grabbed a 2-2 draw against Rostov in a game that saw both sides finish with 10 men.

Some people are trying to make the reality in Russia at least a bit more humane. The amnesty should apply not only to persons involved in high-profile cases, but also to individuals who are not as well-known. It is better to set free at least some of the individuals who deserve to be released than no one at all.
