Glasgow City took a step towards yet another title after a 3-0 result over Spartans, their fifteenth straight win in the league. Lucy Sinclair and Hayley Lauder netted to give City a 2-0 half-time advantage and Jenna Clark got the third soon after the restart. City next host Russia’s Chertanovo in the UWCL on Thursday, with the game at Petershill Park live on BBC ALBA from 7.30pm.
Hibernian, who go to Prague in the Champions League on Wednesday, sent Celtic to a 3-0 defeat to go above them on goal-difference. Hibs were 2-0 up in quarter of an hour through Jamie-Lee Napier and Rachel Boyle, with Shannon Leishmann completing the scoring 2 minutes after the interval.
Rangers are up two places to fourth after coming from behind to record a 4-1 result at Stirling. Jade Menzies had the University side in front but minutes after was stretchered off with a suspected broken foot. Lisa Martinez and Daina Bourma turned the game round with goals either side of the break, Jade Gallon and Rosie McQuillan then added one each to secure the points.
Accies ambition jolted by Jags
With Hearts’ game off, Hamilton missed the chance to go top when losing out at third-placed Partick. Loren Christie and Sophie Gallacher put the Jags 2-0 up but they had to hold on after Kirstie McIntosh halved the deficit.
Kilmarnock climbed two places to fourth after a 4-0 defeat of Dundee United. Clare Docherty got a double, Rebecca Gait and Lisa Swanson one apiece.
St Johnstone beat Glasgow Girls by the only goal of the game, scored by Nicole Carter.
