Highlights: Glasgow City 7-0 FC Martve

Glasgow City need to improve if they are to remain in the Champions League despite a 7-0 win over Martve, says head coach Scott Booth.

City face Gornik Leczna on Monday, when a win by any scoreline other than 1-0 will mean they win the group.

If it is 1-0 then Anderlecht qualify on the head-to-head record, while Polish side Gornik, who beat Anderlecht 1-0, need just a point to secure top spot.

"There's a lot of things we can work on," said Booth.

"If Gornik can get all their top players going I think they've got a little bit more than Anderlecht."

The Scottish champions lost their opening game 2-1 to the Belgian champions, but were given a lifeline with Gornik's victory over Anderlecht on Friday.

That gives City the opportunity to reach the last 32, either as group winners or as one of the two best runners-up.

Booth is hopeful Kirsty Howat and Abbi Grant - who provided five of their seven goals against Georgians Martve - can find their shooting boots again at the Oriam in Edinburgh.

"Kirsty has been desperate to score some goals, so this was a great opportunity for her to get on the scoresheet. So I was pleased with her.

"Abbi is just Abbi. She just goes about her business like that, really high tempo, always looks to score goals, always wants to be the creator."
