What to watch for in a potentially pivotal night of SWPL

Written by on May 1, 2024

Five games left, six points behind. Time is running for City if they want to secure a 17th league title.

In roaring back to triumph last season, City picked up crucial points against the Old Firm. This season, that hasn’t quite been the case.

With just one win in six games against the pair combined, Ross’ side have failed to find the formula against their title rivals this term.

Just a month ago, Celtic dominated despite the narrow 2-1 scoreline at Petershill Park.

Colette Cavanagh pulled the strings from midfield, while the frankly frightening frontline of Amy Gallacher, Kit Loferski and Tash Flint tormented the City defence.

There lies perhaps the biggest difference between City and both Rangers and Celtic. The pair have firepower in abundance.

Gallacher has 22 goals and 18 assists alone. Rangers’ Rio Hardy has 21 and nine.

Last season’s top goalscorer, Lauren Davidson, tops City’s goals chart with 14 and just five assists. The numbers doing the heavy-lifting.

But what City do have in abundance, particularly compared to Celtic, is experience. Ross herself knows how to win leagues like the back of her hand. Celtic are still searching for their first.

It’d take a brave soul to rule City out of any title hunt, but if there isn’t a win on Wednesday, a few heads may pop above the parapet to suggest their race is run.
