With rivals Hibernian having their match postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, Glasgow City took the opportunity to increase their lead at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League to six points with a 4-1 win away to third placed Edinburgh Ladies.
Megan Sneddon gave City the lead after five minutes with a powerful strike and the table toppers also struck the woodwork during the first half. After the break, Edinburgh were back on level terms as Diana Barry scored from close range but Glasgow quickly went back in front via a Suzanne Lappin header and they added further goals through Ruesha Littlejohn and Katharina Lindner.
FC Kilmarnock caught up ground on the top three by coming from behind to beat Hamilton Academicals 2-1. Marie Gemmell broke clear to give the Accies a first half lead which was cancelled out just before half time, when Laura Cooper headed in a Claire McCombe free kick. The game was settled by another header, Toni Mason netting the winning goal for Killie from a Clare Docherty free kick.
Celtic continue to improve and they stepped up their claim for a top three place with a 4-0 victory over Vale of Clyde.
Hayley Cunningham put Celtic in front in the opening minutes and Becky Stokes quickly added a second. Lauren Emmerson got on the scoresheet in the first minute of the second half and Jenny Quigg rounded off the victory with a neat finish.
Queen's Park put the disappointment of their Premier League Cup Final defeat behind them to pick up a crucial 5-3 win against Raith Rovers, a result which takes them out of the bottom three.
This Sunday, the game of the day sees Celtic play host to Hibernian, who will be seeking to take an opportunity to close the gap on Glasgow City. Raith Rovers take on Queen's Park in their return meeting whilst Vale of Clyde play Forfar Farmington in another important clash.
