Glasgow City won the top of the table clash by the odd goal in five against Rangers to go five points clear at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League.
City went ahead after only four minutes when forward Fiona Brown broke down the left hand side before sending a wicked ball across the Rangers six yard box which recovering defender Melissa Krnjiac could only turn into the back of her own net to give the home side the lead. The goal certainly didn't dampen the Rangers players spirits for long as within 60 seconds, Amanda Traynor equalised, firing a low shot past City keeper Lee Alexander.
If two early goals wasn't enough for the big crowd at Petershill, City captain Leanne Ross had them on their feet again after 11 minutes. Good play by Denise O'Sullivan sent Fiona Brown free down the left and the City attacker drove across the box before setting up Ross who fired a screamer of a shot into the top corner and past the despairing Khym Ramsay.
After the break, Brown sent a right foot cross to the Rangers back post to Abbi Grant and with Ramsay committed, Grant intelligently headed the ball back across goal to the incoming O'Sullivan and the Irish international made no mistake from five yards out as she headed into the empty net.
With four minutes remaining Erin Cuthbert threw her team a lifeline as she volleyed past Alexander from inside the box, however Rangers failed to create any further chances and City finished 3-2 winners.
Celtic are in third place following their 3-1 victory away to Hamilton Academicals at New Douglas Park on Friday night. Suzanne Grant marked her comeback for Celtic with a goal and she was joined on the scoresheet by Julie Fleeting and Abigail Harrison.
The win took Celtic above Hibernian who were beaten 3-1 by Spartans in their Edinburgh derby match. Sarah Ewens netted twice and Ciara Barnes the other for Spartans, with Hibs' consolation coming from Rachel Walkingshaw.
Aberdeen cemented themselves in the top half of the table by scoring five without reply against Inverness City. Christie Grimshaw and Hannah Stewart each netted twice for the Dons with Cheryl Anderson also on target.
Hutchison Vale are up into mid-table following their 2-1 victory away to Forfar Farmington. Michelle Russell and Becky Galbraith scored the goals for Hutchie, with Forfar replying through Laura Parsley.
Buchan Ladies claimed their first win and points of the season when they defeated Queen's Park 2-1. Lydia Johnston and Michelle Sutherland were on the scoresheet for Buchan, who are out of the bottom two as a result, with Valentina Mazzoni responding for the Spiders.
