Republic of Ireland winger Aiden McGeady played his first competitive game in four months, coming off the bench for Spartak Moscow against Rubin Kazan in the Russian Premier League.

McGeady, who has recently recovered from a shin injury, was sent on in the 65th minute with Spartak chasing the match. Kazan went ahead through Roman Sharanov’s 58th minute header, but the introduction of McGeady proved crucial with the Irishman crossing the ball for Emmanuel Emenike’s equaliser. McGeady received the ball on the left from Diniyar Bilyaletdinov’s cross-field pass, and set up Emenike with a perfectly floated cross.

The draw keeps Spartak in second position, eight points behind leaders Zenit St. Petersburg and two behind rivals CSKA Moscow in the battle for a Champions League place.
