Rangers draw with Glasgow City in top of the table clash/Managers reaction

Rangers WFC today take the short trip to Petershill for a top of the table clash with Glasgow City. Rangers have so far taken a maximum 27 points from their first nine fixtures with forty seven goals scored and are yet to concede.

SUBS: Fife, Hill, Maclean, Docherty, Watson, Arnot, Cavanagh, McLeary, Howat.

First half action

3 mins – Superb ball by Danielsson and Hay is in, she waits and keeper makes the stop, she should score. 0-0

7 mins – Rangers fail to clear a corner and a City strike is deflected just wide, that was close. 0-0

16 mins – Caution 📒 Fulton picks up a yellow for a check on Sam Kerr. 0-0

30 mins – Sam Kerr wins it in midfield but her strike is straight at Gibson. 0-0

36 mins – Rangers best spell at Cornet drives a looping strike just over. 0-0

42 mins – Chance for McCoy as she heads over from a corner. 0-0

44 mins – Middag has an effort blocked as Rangers push for opener late in half. 0-0

Glasgow City 0 Rangers 0 HT

Second half action

52 mins – Penalty Glasgow City!

GOAL! Glasgow City score the penalty after Martinez ‘fouls’ the attacker. Davidson converts the penalty. 1-0 Glasgow City

On review that’s such a bad decision, Martinez is no where near the attacker and she trips herself with her trailing heel. That’s unbelievably harsh on Rangers.

67 mins – Rangers first response with a Middag drive. 1-0

69 mins – PENALTY TO RANGERS! McCoy is bundled over.

GOOOAAAALLLL! Middag converts and Rangers are back on terms! 1-1

71 mins – SUBSTITUTION – Hay OFF Arnott ON

83 mins – SUBSTITUTION – Danielsson OFF Watson ON, McCoy OFF Howat ON

84 mins – Glasgow City drive one over from range. 1-1

88 mins – BAR! Middag with a lovely cross and Martinez thunders a header off the cross bar! 1-1

4 minutes added on

90 mins – SO CLOSE! Howat with a ball inches across the face of goal, that was fractions away from the winner. 1-1

90 + 4! Chance for Howat as she does well to lift it towards goal but just wide! 1-1

FULL TIME – GLASGOW CITY 1 RANGERS 1

  1. Thanks for the coverage Stevie
    Was a good even match. Gers were a bit tentative in the final 3rd, happy to keep possession sometimes rather than go for goal. Some great chances at the end tho.
