Team’s Up: Bartle makes the bench, Atkinson’s third start and a possible debut for New Ghirl London Pollard

Fran Alonso has named his Celtic FC Women side to play Motherwell at K-Park this lunchtime, and you can watch the match Live on BBC Scotland’s website. Jodie Bartle returns from injury to make the bench alongside new signing from Forfar Farmington London Pollard.

The Celtic team is as follows: Chloe Logan, Chloe Craig, Mariah Lee, Jacynta, Lisa Robertson, Sarah Ewens, Rachel Donaldson, Sarah Teegarden, Kelly Clark (captain), Izzy Atkinson and Anna Fibley.

Substitutes are Bartle, Nicolson, Hayes, Pollard, Bowie, McAllister and Johnstone.

Expect a goal or two from Sarah Ewens and the other Sarah, American playmaker Teegarden to run the middle of the park.

Later today theRangers and Glasgow City play so something must give there. A big Celtic win will do wonders for the goal difference and with Celtic playing Glasgow City in midweek it’s a crucial stage on the season for the Hoops. Two wins and we’re right in there as title contenders. Let’s do it Ghirls. OYGIG
