City lead in home straight
 Women's Football Scottish WPL News - 28 May 2021
 
Glasgow City are the leaders in the home straight in the SWPL 1 season although they did see their winning run checked on Sunday.
 
Scott Booth's side were held to a goalless draw by Hibernian and saw their lead trimmed, but still with matters very much in their hands.
 
This result was followed up on Wednesday night with a 4-1 victory over Hearts. Hayley Lauder gave City an eighth minute lead and after Mariel Kaney equalised early in the second half, Janine van Wyk put City back in front with a fierce 20-yard strike and they went on to add further goals through Niamh Farrelly and Aoife Colvill. This means that City head the table by three points, with two matches left to play.
 
Celtic look to be the team with the most realistic chance of catching them, following two fine away wins. Kelly Clark and Sarah Ewens scored the goals, with Rachel McLauchlan replying, as Celtic won the Old Firm derby match 2-1 against Rangers.
 
The Hoops then won 1-0 away to Hibernian to stay on the leaders' heels. Caitlin Hayes scored the only goal of the game, heading in following a corner on the stroke of half time.
 
Rangers went into their midweek meeting with Forfar Farmington needing a victory to keep their title hopes alive and they duly delivered, running out 4-0 winners. Daina Bourma gave Rangers the lead in the first half and after the break, they added further goals through Sam Kerr, Chantelle Swaby and Lizzie Arnot.
 
Spartans have enioyed a good week, which has left them in the driving seat for a top half finish. On Sunday, they won 3-0 against Forfar Farmington, Rebecca Galbraith opening the scoring four minutes ahead of the interval - the striker then going on to have a remarkable three further goals disallowed for offside. Katherine Smart increased their lead midway through the second half and Louise Mason wrapped up the scoring with the third, nine minutes before half time.
 
On Wednesday night, Spartans picked up a second straight win but needed to come from two goals behind in their 3-2 success at Motherwell. The Women of Steel were also chasing a second win in a row and looked to be on course when Jade Gallon and Kaela McDonald-Nguah put them two goals ahead at half time but after the break, Alana Marshall netted twice in quick succession to bring the scores level again and Michaela McAlonie completed the comeback for Spartans as she scored the winner with ten minutes remaining.
 
There was better fortune for Motherwell three days earlier as they had picked up an important 1-0 victory away to Hearts. There were chances for both teams but the match was settled in the 37th minute when Jade Gallon netted the only goal from the penalty spot, following a huge scramble in the Hearts area.
