A double from Leanne Crichton along with strikes by Hayley Sinclair and Kirsty Howat all in the first half secured City all three points in this Glasgow derby, ahead of the midweek trip to Russia for a Champions League Round of 32 1st leg tie.

Sarah Ewens and Chloe Craig netted for a 2-0 interval lead in Celtic’s 7-0 thrashing of Forfar. Kathleen McGovern and Josephine Giard each added two, the latter from the bench, while Cheryl McCulloch also got on the score-sheet.

Hibernian warmed up for Wednesday’s UWCL clash with Slavia Praha at Easter Road with a 4-0 win away at Spartans. A brace from Siobhan Hunter and goals from Rachel Boyle and Lauren Davidson all came after the interval.

Stirling University are without a win in 15 games following a 2-1 loss at Motherwell. Chelsea McEachran and Kerry Montgomery netted for the home side, Claire Petersen halved the deficit in the second period.

Hamilton stayed goal-difference ahead of Hearts at the top of SWPL 2 after the pair shared four goals. Danni McGinley and substitute Maddy Brill-Edwards got equalisers for Hearts after MT Gardiner and a Nichola Sturrock free-kick had the Accies ahead.

Glasgow Girls leapfrogged Partick Thistle into second by beating them 2-0 and a first-half Lauren Kerr double.

Dundee United edged St Johnstone by the odd goal in five in a game that saw two penalties missed, although the hosts’ effort did hit both posts. Tammy Harkin’s second goal sealed the points for Dundee, Lauren Ross also on target.

Elsewhere, Kilmarnock sank lowly hosts Hutchison Vale 7-2.
