Glasgow City to face Celtic in SWPL

Glasgow City moved to the top of the SWPL after a 4-0 midweek win over Spartans but face a tough test to stay there as they face a confident Celtic side at K Park in East Kilbride.

A narrow 1-0 defeat in the first game of the season against a talented Hibs side remains the only blight in an otherwise perfect start to the campaign for the Hoops.  League wins over Hearts, Stirling University and Forfar combined with a place in the League Cup Semi-Final has put Celtic in as strong a position as they have been in recent seasons with nearly two months of the new season played. 

City have had to play catch up due to Champions League commitments but are now back on level terms and ready to face Celtic on Sunday. City Captain Leanne Ross said, “Celtic, like ourselves, have had a good start to the SWPL season and we look forward to coming up against a tough opponent high in confidence.

“Recently our performances have been very efficient, resulting in high scoring games and comfortable victories.Sunday’s game will be very competitive so we will have to continue to play at a high tempo and be in good possession of the ball in order to achieve our desired result.”
