Perepļotkins joined FC Metalist Kharkiv at the age of 18, but over the next two years had spells with several different clubs. Clubs included Fili Moscow and R.S.C. Anderlecht, as well as spending time at Southampton's academy. Because of problems obtaining a work permit, Perepļotkins was unable to play for Southampton in front of a paying crowd, thus preventing him appearing for the first team.


His big break came with Irish side Bohemians, where he played 18 games, scoring three goals, winning the League of Ireland title in 2003, however he was released by Bohs midway through the 2004 season. Skonto signed him for the beginning of the 2004–05 season. Over the next six years Perepļotkins played 92 league matches, scoring 24 times, helping the side to win the 2005 Livonia Cup, as well as the Virsliga 2010 championship. Before the start of the 2011 season Perepļotkins joined Nasaf Qarshi, signing a two-year deal.[1] In his first season there 7 goals in 24 league appearances, became the team's top scorer and also managed to help his team win the AFC Cup, also scoring the winning goal in the final.[2] Suffering a long-term injury Perepļotkins played just 16 matches, scoring once in 2012 for the Uzbek club. In March 2013 Perepļotkins moved to the Estonian Meistriliiga club Narva Trans.[3] In his league debut match Perepļotkins scored a goal, with the match against Tallinna Kalev ending in a 1-1 draw.[4] Due to injuries his stay in Estonia was not long lasting, and in August 2013 Perepļotkins moved back to Latvia, signing a contract with the Latvian Higher League club Daugava Rīga.[5]

Derby County[edit]

On 1 August 2008, Perepļotkins joined Derby County on trial[6] and he made his debut in a 2–2 with Dutch side F.C. Utrecht on 3 August.[7] After impressing in training and the game[7] Derby agreed a loan fee with Skonto and signed Perepļotkins on a season long loan on 7 August 2008, alongside Serbian striker Aleksandar Prijovic.[8]

Perepļopkins made his full debut against Doncaster on 9 August, being replaced by Steve Davies after 64 minutes.[9] However he played just once more for Derby and his loan was terminated 6 months in by mutual consent on 15 January 2009 by new Derby manager Nigel Clough.[10][11]

International career[edit]

In 2007 Latvian government decided to offer Latvian citizenship to Perepļotkins and this offer was accepted by the player. On March 16, 2007 he got his Latvian passport, giving him a chance to play for Latvia internationally.[12] Perepļotkins made his international debut for Latvia as they unsuccessfully tried to qualify for Euro 2008. As of 2013, Perepļotkins has collected 36 caps, scoring three times.[13]
