Hamilton Foiled In Last Five Minutes

Hamilton were close to a big upset at Glasgow City until a late goal rush, while Nicole Pullar's hat-trick gave Stirling victory at Rangers.

City Saved By Late Goal Spree

Glasgow City retook the SWPL 1 top spot 24 hours after losing it to Hibernian but they left it very ate indeed to defeat Hamilton Academical.

Joanne Paton put the Accies ahead on 18 minutes, when turning in a free-kick played in from the halfway line.

The lead was held through to half time, as Elaine Fleming clawed away an effort from Nicola Docherty and blocked another from Keeva Keenan after a corner.

It wasn't until 5 minutes from time that City levelled and ironically it came from an own-goal from Docherty's cross.

A minute later and Hayley Lauder broke Hamilton hearts with a second and then doubled her own tally for the night in added time.

Pullar got her first on 16 minutes but the Gers were level within the half-hour, as Hayley Sinclair found the net from the edge of the box.

The students were back in front on half-time when Rebecca Galbraith's cross was spilled and fell for Pullar to put in the net.

The hosts equalised for a second time on 62 minutes, with Claire Adams netting from a tight angle. 

But Pullar's third and decisive goal arrived just over 10 minutes later. 

Dons Face Forfeit

Aberdeen were left dismayed at having a long midweek trip to Spartans enforced on them in the fixture list and refused to travel due to work and college duties.

The outcome could well be that Spartans are awarded the game, while the Dons stay bottom without a win.

Neither are workable or likely at present but hypothetically, would you prefer a more strict salary cap in the FA WSL OR should centrally contracted England players (that receive salaries from The FA) be allocated more evenly around WSL1 clubs?
