Highlights from Celtic FC Women’s 2-0 win away to Motherwell

Highlights from last night’s 2-0 win for Celtic FC Women in their away SWPL1 fixture at K Park in East Kilbride against Motherwell are available now and you can watch below…

Celtic scored just once in each half, a perfectly placed Caitlin Hayes back post header found the other corner of the Motherwell net while a fortuitous Tash Flint mishit took out the Motherwell keeper, who had a decent game making numerous saves, and leaving Amy Gallacher with the empty goal at her mercy.

So perhaps a lower than expected scoreline for Elena Sadiku side but it’s another three points as momentum is restored after those two bruising defeats to theRangers in the Sky Sports Cup and Glasgow City in the league.

Elsewhere in the SWPL1 last night, Hibs, who Celtic FC Women play this weekend, enjoyed a comfortable 4-0 of strugglers Dundee United. Aberdeen won the North East derby beating Montrose (who Celtic play in the Scottish Cup shortly) by 2-1 and Glasgow City hammered Hamilton 6-0. theRangers picked up all three points with a tight 1-0 over Hearts and Partick Thistle won by the same scoreline away to Spartans.

This weekend all three top sides are away from home while Hearts take on Aberdeen in Edinburgh. Celtic are in the capital too, to play Hibs while theRangers make the short trip to Petershill Park to take on Partick Thistle in a dress rehearsal for the Sky Sports Cup Final. Glasgow City should improve their goal difference during their trip to Montrose. And in the one other game this Sunday, there’s a Lanarkshire Derby as Hamilton play hosts to Motherwell.

The Hibs v Celtic FC Women match will be played at Meadowbank Stadium and the kick-off will be at 4.10pm, and the game will be available to watch on BBC Alba.
