Glasgow City continued their 100% domestic record this season with a 7-0 win over Buchan today at Petershill Park

Three first half goals from Lisa Robertson, Ruesha Littlejohn and Suzanne Lappin, put City firmly in the driving seat, before second half strikes from Sarah Crilly, Suzanne Malone and a brace from Leanne Ross, ensured three points for the home side. City started the game on the front foot and it didn’t take long before getting their noses in front. An excellent City move, released Jo Love into the penalty box only for the Scotland midfielder to be brought down by Rebecca Flaherty in the Buchan goal. The ref pointed to the spot, Flaherty was shown a yellow card and up stepped Lisa Robertson to finish from 12 yards. Unfortunately, it was to be Love’s last action in the match as it proved too heavy a knock to shake off and she was replaced by Leanne Ross. On 14 minutes, City doubled their lead as Ruesha Littlejohn fired home off the underside of the cross bar and a great header from Suzanne Lappin after a Leanne Ross corner put City 3-0 up after 33 minutes.After the break, Littlejohn, Suzanne Malone and Ross all went close in the first few minutes before Malone added number four from six yards as she got on the end of Ross pass. It was soon 5-0 after a great goal from Leanne Ross finished off a fine City move. Ross was on target again on 55 minutes after another excellent Glasgow City move involving Littlejohn to finish into the bottom corner with a well-placed left foot strike. Five minutes later and Sarah Crilly scored her first of the match and her side’s seventh as she shot past Flaherty home from distance. Commenting on the match, City Head Coach, Eddie Wolecki Black said, “I am delighted with a clean sheet, our fourth in a row, so we are obviously getting back to a bit of stability and consistency. Another pleasing aspect was to score 7 goals with 6 different goalscorers, which again shows we are not dependant on one player to score the goals for us. We were also able to turn around the squad from Thursday’s match and utilise the full depth of the team and I felt we passed we the ball very well today at times and caused the opposition lots of problems. Now we build up to what is a top of table clash next week against Hibs.”Glasgow City’s next match is away to second placed Hibs on Sunday 19th May at Albyn Park, Broxburn. Kick off 2pm. With both teams proudly boasting a 100% record in the SWPL so far, it is sure to be a cracker.
