Spartans Women went top of the Scottish Women’s Premier League with a 3-1 victory against Forfar Farmington at the weekend.

Alana Marshall scored from the penalty spot before Mariel Kaney and Katie Reilly added further goals.

The local side were given the chance to go in front when Marshall was upended on the edge of the box.

After the Spartans playmaker dispatched the penalty herself, Amy Gallacher responded immediately for the visitors with a fine solo effort – running from the halfway line before finishing.

Forfar’s celebrations were short-lived, however, as Smith was shown a red card for an off-the-ball incident.

Spartans regained the lead on the hour mark when Marshall’s corner forced a goal-line scramble and Kaney eventually nodded in.

Kaney then fed Reilly, who wrapped up the win with a first-time strike.

Manager Suzy Shepherd was delighted to make it two wins from two, following up their opening day win over Aberdeen.

Sahe said “There’s not going to be any easy games this season in the new eight-team format and we are just taking them one at a time..

“Credit to the players for the hard work they are putting in on the training ground and then taking it into games.”
