Hibs Ladies’ SWPL 1 title hopes suffered a huge blow last night as they went down 1-0 to league leaders and reigning champions Glasgow City.
Chris Roberts’ outfit now trail their rivals by five points after Katie McCabe’s first-half strike at the Excelsior Stadium, although they do have a game in hand against Celtic on Wednesday.
It’s the second time this season the Hibees have lost to Scott Booth’s side, the other a 2-1 defeat at Ainslie Park in May.
Hibs fell behind to McCabe’s 20-yard strike just before the half-hour mark and, despite creating several opportunities after the break – Abi Harrison, Rachael Small and Lisa Robertson all going close – they were unable to find an equaliser.
The two teams meet at for a third time on the penultimate weekend of the season on Sunday, November 12.
