Republic of Ireland international Aiden McGeady scored the only goal of the game as Spartak Moscow leapfrogged Rubin Kazan with an away in in the Russian Premier League.

Spartak have been struggling this season, with McGeady missing two months through injury, and Unai Emery getting the sack following a 5-1 home defeat to bitter rivals Dinamo Moscow. Valeri Karpin has returned as manager and recorded his first win this evening with a 1-0 win over Rubin Kazan. Irish winger McGeady scored on the hour mark following a great run from Spanish attacker Jose Manuel Jurado. Jurado pulled the ball back across goal, and McGeady controlled it before rifling it into the net from the edge of the area.

The win sees Spartak climb to sixth ahead of the winter break. Play resumes in March, with the top two teams qualifying for the Champions League, and the teams from third to fifth entering the Europa League next season.
