There is no change at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League as the joint leaders both recorded important victories to step up their title challenges.
Glasgow City remain on top of the table on goal difference following a 2-0 victory away to Spartans. City took the lead after only 20 seconds on the clock when Denise O'Sullivan finished from close range after City went on the offensive straight from kick off. An own goal on 34 minutes secured the points after Abbi Grant sent a looping effort towards the back post following a Leanne Ross corner, which the Spartans rearguard could only knock into their own net.
Hibernian are still keeping pace with them in second place after they picked up a fine 1-0 win over Celtic. A second half header from Siobhan Hunter gave Hibs a precious victory, their 12th in 13 matches in the league.
Aberdeen are back up into third place, courtesy of a 2-0 win against Rangers who are one of the teams that they have climbed above. Both of the goals came in the last fifteen minutes, Rachael Small putting the Dons in front from the penalty spot and Hannah Stewart clinching the points via a 25-yard strike shortly afterwards.
Stirling University remain as the leading side in the bottom section of the table after they defeated Hutchison Vale 2-0. Rachel Donaldson opened the scoring for Stirling with Rebecca Robertson adding the second to give their side a three point lead over their nearest rivals.
This is because Hearts lost a little ground when they went down to a 1-0 defeat at home to Hamilton Academical. Courtney McAvoy grabbed the only goal of the game to earn the Accies three important points which lift them out of the bottom two.
Forfar Farmington moved themselves closer towards the mid-table positions by scoring seven times without reply against Inverness City. Holly Napier and Keira Johnstone ensured that Forfar led by two goals at half time and after the break, Amy Gallacher added a third and Tori Sousa increased her side's lead on her debut. Lindsey Dunbar and Jade McLaren also got on the scoresheet before Napier rounded off the win with her second goal late on.
