Glasgow City reclaim top spot
 Women's Football Scottish WPL News - 24 Apr 2021
 
It has been a good few days for Glasgow City and it has ended with them three points clear at the top of SWPL 1.
 
On Sunday they went top of the table - on goals scored - after an 8-0 victory over Motherwell at the Broadwood Stadium. City led by three at the break thanks to an Aoife Colvill double and Ode Fulutudilu, who went on to add two more after the break and complete a hat-trick. Lauren Davidson also netted a second half brace before Leanne Crichton rounded off the scoring.
 
This meant that Rangers were back in second despite winning 1-0 against Hibernian, Lizzie Arnot grabbing the only goal of the game against her former club early in the second half.
 
On Wednesday night, it was Glasgow City's turn to face Hibernian and they won 2-1, their tenth victory of the season. Eilidh Adams gave Hibs an early lead but City levelled through a spectacular 25-yard strike from Janine van Wyk and Priscilla Chinchilla netted the winner from the penalty spot on the hour.
 
Rangers meanwhile took on Celtic in the Old Firm derby match at Celtic Park. The game was closely fought with Rangers twice hitting the woodwork after the break but the only goal came with ten minutes remaining, a Celtic counter attack from a corner seeing Chloe Warrington's pass releasing Mariah Lee who rounded the oncoming Jenna Fife and kept her cool to slot home and give Celtic a 1-0 win which completes a double over their rivals.
 
Three days earlier, Celtic had kept themselves in the title running with a 5-1 success away to Spartans. Sarah Ewens and Sarah Marie Teegarden put the Hoops two ahead and after Alana Marshall pulled one back on the stroke of half time, Anna Filbey restored the advantage before Chloe Craig hit a late double.
 
The game which hit the headlines on Sunday though was at Hearts where the home side drew 1-1 with Forfar Farmington. Hearts had led through an early goal from Monica Forsyth and looked on course for three vital points but as the match went into injury time, Forfar goalkeeper Lauren Perry remarkably stepped up to score from a 30-yard free kick and salvage a draw for her side.
 
There was less drama as Forfar met Spartans on Wednesday night, as Spartans picked up a 2-1 victory which takes them back up to fourth. Rebecca Galbraith scored twice inside the opening eight minutes to give Spartans the points, despite Forfar pulling one back ahead of half time through Cheryl Kilcoyne.
 
Motherwell are back off the bottom after a vital 2-1 win over Hearts. Claire Adams and Nicole Pullar put the Women of Steel two ahead after the break, with Kirstie McIntosh reducing the arrears in the second half.
