Amy Muir pulled one back on 84 minutes, with Jade Gallon and Holly Napier both netting in stoppage-time.

They were ahead on 9 minutes when Zoe Johnstone won a free kick just outside the box and Michaela McAlonie stepped up to give the keeper with no chance.

Spartans had a goal ruled out for offside and Johnstone hit the bar before on 75 minutes Katie Frew was brought down in the area and Kaela McDonald-Nguah converted.
