Eugene Starikov's 2010 Russian Premier League concludes on Sunday when Tomsk host Rostov at Stadion Trud in Tomsk.
Starikov is set to make his sixth start of the season for the Siberians who avoided any relegation threats last weekend when they defeated last place Sibir 0-1.
The final round of the RPL will see all teams kicking off at the same time on Sunday.
Starikov's parent club, Zenith St. Petersburg, wrapped up another RPL crown several weeks ago.
The dual citizen from Florida has played well since getting the nod from head coach Valeri Nepomnyaschiy back in October.
Starikov has scored a goal and drawn a penalty kick for Tomsk who have struggled all season long to find the back of the net.
Their opponents on Sunday share a similar position in the league standings with both clubs occupying the middle and frankly, with nothing to play for except pride.
Both coaches should have full squads available.
