  2. FULL-TIME Aberdeen 2-4 Celtic

    It wasn't all plain sailing but Celtic get the job done in the end.

    Charlie Wellings was comfortably the player of the match having been involved throughout for the away side.

    Fair play to Aberdeen on their return to top flight they've given last years runners-up a scare and look like they have the potential to cause a few upsets this season.

  3. GOAL Aberdeen 2-4 Celtic

    Chloe Craig

    That should settle any late nerves for Celtic.

    Chloe Craig steps up and sends Gail Gilmour the wrong way from the spot.

  4. PENALTY Celtic

    Aberdeen 2-3 Celtic

    Clarissa Larisey skips past Gail Gilmour and Celtic can wrap up the points here...

    Four minutes added on, is there time for another goal?

  6. GOAL Aberdeen 2-3 Celtic

    Eilidh Shore

    Hold on a minute this game might not be done yet!

    Aberdeen float the ball into the box and Eilidh Shore is there to loop the ball over Rachael Johnstone.

  7. GOAL Aberdeen 1-3 Celtic

    Charlie Wellings

    Celtic finally extend their lead through the standout player this afternoon in Charlie Wellings.

    Another one of Celtic's summer signings Clarissa Larisey drives down the left before cutting back to Wellings who takes one touch to set herself before firing into the top corner.

  8. CLOSE!

    Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    After a nice exchange of passes from Aberdeen, Eva Thompson who unleashes a shot from the edge of the box and it just creeps wide.

    Celtic then go straight up the other end as Charlie Wellings hits the post with her strike from just inside the box.


    Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    Celtic continue to look a threat from set pieces, this time Kelly Clark flicks a corner into the air at the front post.

    It looks like it's just going to go harmlessly over the bar but it bounces on top of the bar and Aberdeen are first to the rebound to clear.


    Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    Celtic's Kathleen McGovern breaks into the box and is brought down by Jenna Penman.

    Some penalty appeals are made but the defender seems confident she got the ball and the replays show she's right to feel that way.

    Penman just got her toe to the ball first before making contact with McGovern.

  11. Spare a thought for Forfar

    A word on Forfar Farmington after they had to withdraw from SWPL1 before the start of the season.

    Their under-19s side won 4-2 against East Fife today, nice to see the club still has some parts that are able to function despite the sad news in the summer.

  12. GOOD SAVE!

  13. KICK-OFF

    Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    We're back underway for the second half at Balmoral.

  14. HALF-TIME Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    As you would expect Celtic were the side with more opportunities but Aberdeen have more than held their own on their return to the top flight.

    Celtic will be keen to extend their lead in the second-half quickly otherwise they may let Aberdeen back in.

  15. CLOSE!

    Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    Charlie Wellings is in behind the Aberdeen backline again.

    Another long ball from Cheyenne Shorts finds her but this time the finish is wide of the target.

  16. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    Since that Aberdeen equaliser Celtic have stepped it up a gear.

    Credit to Aberdeen though, they're defending well, putting in some crunching tackles and well timed blocks to keep the deficit to just one goal.

  17. Post update

    Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    Huge chance for Celtic as Sarah Teegarden steals the ball from Jess Broadrick and is clean through on goal.

    The American gets her angle wrong and can't decide whether to pass or shoot and ends up with the worst of both worlds.

  18. GOAL Aberdeen 1-2 Celtic

    Chloe Craig

    New season, same Chloe Craig.

    The defender stays up following a set peice and gets her rewards as she's on hand to tuck in at the back post.

  19. GOAL Aberdeen 1-1 Celtic

    Kelly Clark OG

    Aberdeen hit back with a deserved equaliser after some good play.

  20. GOAL Aberdeen 0-1 Celtic

    Charlie Wellings

    The summer signing from Bristol City gets her first Celtic league goal by latching onto a long throw ball and blasting past Gilmour.
