A sixth-minute own goal from Ivan Cherenchikov set the visitor on its way with
Alexander Eliseev adding another after 38 minutes.

A red card for
Andrei Semenov four minutes before the interval ended any hopes of a comeback for Amkar as Krylya pulled seven points clear of basement side Mordovia Saransk.

It remains a point behind Volga Nizhny Novgorod, which was a 1-0 winner at Lokomotiv Moscow courtesy of Shamil Asildarov's 40th-minute strike.

The day's other match between Kuban Krasnodar and strugglers Alania Vladikavkaz finished goalless.

There were, however, three red cards with Luiz Zelao and
Alexey Kozlov sent off for Kuban while Aslan Dudiev was given his marching orders for Alania.
