Seventh clean sheet ensures City victory
Glasgow City today defeated Forfar Farmington 3-0 at Forfar West End to take them one game closer to the Premier League title.
City’s win was also their seventh clean sheet in a row, a run which has extended since 18th November last year and over nearly 11 hours of football.
City took the lead in the first half courtesy of Leanne Ross from a clever indirect free kick inside the box after the Forfar keeper picked up a deliberate pass back. City had a number of chances to extend their lead and finally did through a fantastic team goal.
Some good work by Jane Ross down the right wing found Katharina Lindner inside the box and her one touch back heel met the on running Suzanne Lappin who finished off a great move in style.
In the second half, City continued to dominate creating chance after chance and scored number three, through Jill Patterson. Patterson, the versatile City player has found herself in a few different positions this season, but playing as a wide striker today, proved once again how adaptable and crucial she is to the City side and thoroughly deserved her first and City’s third goal of the day.
With the match now beyond them, Forfar continued to work hard to try and create an opening, but chances were few and far between for the home side. However, with one minute remaining they nearly got on the scoresheet when a ill judged back pass from City was picked up by a Forfar striker who hit her shot just narrowly wide.
City boss Peter Caulfield was full of praise for his team. He said, “Some of our football today was fantastic and our second goal was outstanding. I am really proud of all of my players today and to have another clean sheet is tremendous. We defend well and we can score goals and this has got us into the position we are in just now. Our next game is a big one, but ultimately it is just another game. We have needed three points from all of our games and the next one against Hibs is no different.”
