Glasgow City conceded their first goals of the season but remain top of the Scottish Womens Premier League after a 4-2 win over Forfar Farmington.

A Fiona Brown double and strikes from Nicola Doherty and Sarah Crilly ensured City remain five points clear of Hibernian Ladies.

Hibs, who have a game in hand, were 3-2 winners over Celtic.

Elsewhere Rangers Ladies beat Aberdeen Ladies 2-1, and Spartans women were 3-1 winners over Stirling University.

City head coach Scott Booth hailed his side after winning three games in a week, following successes over Aberdeen and Spartans.

He said: "I am delighted to end the week with nine points and some good football. Today, Forfar made it very difficult for us and I would like to give them credit for the way they played.

"We were below our usual standards, but after three games in a week, I am very happy with three wins."
