Team’s Up – Chloe Logan returns as one of six Celtic changes

Fran Alonso has made six changes from the side that started against theRangers on Thursday night for today’s crucial SWPL1 match against Partick Thistle which kicks off at 12.10pm and is live on BBC ALBA.

The Celtic FC Women manager is determined to rotate his squad to maximise the chances his side has of securing a league and Scottish Cup double with every player in his squad expected to contribute in the run-in with just four games including today remaining and obviously the Scottish Cup final against theRangers at the end of the month.

Chloe Logan makes a welcome return to the starting eleven after her long term absence through injury and she has the glove today. Taylor Otto, Chloe Craig, Lisa Robertson, Tegan Bowie and Maria McAneny, all subs the other night, start today in a game which Celtic simply must win and ideally by a decent margin as goal difference could yet determine which of the three title challenges end up as Champions.

It’s been a long road back for Chloe Logan

Jacynta, Gallacher and the goal machine Tash Flint will be tasked with putting the ball in toe back of the net but there are goal threats throughout this Celtic side which today is as follows:

Chloe Logan, Taylor Otto, Lisa Robertson, Chloe Craig, Amy Gallacher, Jacynta, Kelly Clark (c), Caitlin Hayes, Tegan Bowie, Tash Flint and Maria McAneny.

On the bench for Celtic FC Women this afternoon are Tajonar, O’Riordan, Shen, Kerner, Fergusson, Loferski, Menglu and Goldie.

This is must win. Nothing else will do and Fran Alonso’s side will be pushing all the way to the final whistle to score as many goals as possible.


Chloe Logan earlier this year extended her contract at Celtic. Here’s her interview with Celtic TV at that time…
