Tom Tomsk surrendered a two-goal lead but held on for their first point of the season at home to Anzhi Makhachkala on Sunday.
Jan Holenda's strike and an Igor Portnyagin penalty handed Anatoli Davydov's side the advantage, but Pavel Solomatin netted from the spot to reduce the deficit before Nikita Burmistrov levelled the scores at 2-2.

Spartak Gogniev scored the hosts' consolation goal with six minutes to play.
