City chasing winter warmer

Glasgow City face one final test before the Premier League winter shut down this Sunday when they travel to the Capital to take on a talented Edinburgh side.


City sit top of the league, with Edinburgh in third place behind Hibernian. However, City boss Peter Caulfield knows that his side’s 3-2 defeat to Hibs a fortnight ago means they can ill afford to slip up again. He said, “We threw the game against Hibs away, having been 2-0 up with 65 minutes played. But we have definitely learned our lesson from that and if anything it will make us stronger from now on.


“Edinburgh are a good side and it took until the last minute at Glasgow Green earlier on in the season for us to score the winning goal in our extremely tight 3-2 victory. We know the problems they can pose, but will continue to focus on our game and our talents. If we play to our strengths I am more than confident we will end the match with the crucial three points.


“After Sunday we go into the winter break and we need to keep ourselves up at the top of the league and in a good position to challenge for the title, when we resume our League fixtures in February.”


Elsewhere Queens Park travel to Kirkcaldy to face Raith Rovers and will be hoping to lick their wounds following their Premier League Cup Final defeat last weekend at the hands of Hibs. It was a fantastic achievement for the Spiders to make it all the way to the final and will be hoping it can kickstart their faltering league campaign.


Sunday’s fixtures: Edinburgh v Glasgow City, Queens Park v Raith Rovers, Celtic v Vale of Clyde, Hamilton v Kilmarnock, Forfar Farmington v Hibernian
