Glasgow City will take the advantage into this week's Scottish Building Society Scottish Women's Premier League title showdown with Hibernian after they defeated Stirling University 3-0 on Sunday.
In a match where Stirling keeper Chloe Logan was in inspired form, City took the lead on 29 minutes when Abbi Grant fired into the roof of the net from close range after Logan had expertly saved her first attempt after a Nicola Docherty cross to the back post. Grant then hit the post, but City were soon further ahead when Leanne Crichton powered the ball past Logan from inside the box. Grant made it 3-0 for City on 62 minutes as she raced on to a well timed Hayley Lauder pass to slot past Logan for her second of the match and her twentieth goal of the season.
City therefore lead the table by two points from Hibernian who maintained the pressure on them by winning 4-1 away to Rangers. Kirsty Smith, Rachael Small and Siobhan Hunter ensured that Hibs led by three goals at the break and although Chantelle Brown reduced the arrears for Rangers in the second half, Abigail Harrison made the points safe for her side with the final goal.
Spartans meanwhile returned to form with a 3-2 victory over third placed Celtic. Rachel Walkingshaw gave Spartans a first half lead which was cancelled out by Sarah Ewens but in the second half, Ronaigh Douglas and Elena Santoyo-Brown put the Edinburgh side two ahead and despite, Mairead Fulton pulling one back for Celtic, Spartans held on for a result which keeps them in with a chance of a top half finish.
Aberdeen gave their survival hopes a lifeline when they won 3-0 against Hamilton Academical. The Dons needed nothing less than a win against their opponents in order to keep their hopes of staying up alive and a Chloe Fitzpatrick hat-trick gave them their first league win of the season. There is still a lot of work for Aberdeen to do though, as they still trail the Accies by four points, with two games to play.
