24.04.21 / Auchenhowie

Auchenhowie is set to host Rangers v Forfar Farmington in the 12th match week of the SWPL1. Without star striker Kirsty Howat, Malky will be looking to his bench for a much-needed finisher to re-instate their winning ways. Forfar’s Lauren Perry has been pulling off performances both in goal and in front of it - her name has been circulating around Twitter after a magnificent free-kick against Hearts. An unlikely scorer, she could replicate something similar at the Rangers Training Centre.

Rangers

Heartbreak set in again on Wednesday after Celtic beat Rangers at Parkhead, for the second time this season. A late goal from Mariah Lee meant that the Gers went home empty handed. The score-line didn’t reflect their relentless performances though – the crossbar was fairly rattled from efforts so close. Domination and persistence just weren’t enough, and Celtic put their solo chance to use. Before this, Malky head lead his side to emphatic wins, such as five goals against Spartans and six past Hearts. Now they’ll be looking to get back on track and race for first place.

Forfar Farmington

Forfar’s last win came against Motherwell at the start of April – one goal separating them at 3-2. Results since then have been hard to find and harder to build from. Last week, Spartan’s Becky Galbraith slotted two past Lauren Perry within ten minutes, but they still fought on to get a goal back. The Edinburgh side were fortunate to maintain the win and absorb Forfar’s pressure going forward. Sitting sixth but aiming for fourth, a result against Rangers would heighten those chances.
