New Tinto Park, Kick-Off: Sunday 15 May, 2pm
Rangers will look to get over the disappointment of their SWPL Cup defeat as they host the SWPL 1 leaders Glasgow City.
However, they could hardly get a more difficult opponent although Rangers have yet to lose at home in all competitions this season.
Rangers had struggled in the league during the beginning of the season, including a rather painful loss to Celtic. But in recent weeks, that has changed, winning their last three games – including impressive wins over Aberdeen and Spartans – to move up to second in the league, six points behind City.
This winning streak came to an end last Sunday as they lost 4-1 to Hibernian, and today, they get another tough fixture.
Glasgow City reached their tenth consecutive domestic final last Sunday as they defeated Aberdeen 1-0 in a performance where they failed to convert their dominance in front of goal.
But, in the league, they have been in stunning form. They’ve won six out of six league games (including a 2-0 win over Hibernian) and they’ve scored 17 goals and conceded just two goals in all competitions.
They’ve developed a pattern of dragging out 1-0 wins – three out of their six league wins have been by that scoreline – but a win is a win, and they sit top of the SWPL 1.
Neither side can move higher up the league, in fact, Glasgow City will remain in first regardless of the result. Rangers, on the other hand, could drop down to fourth with a defeat.
