RANGERS defender Jenna Clark believes there are positives to take forward into this Sunday’s SWPL game against Celtic despite a 2-0 league defeat against Glasgow City on Wednesday.
Goals in the first and last minutes made the difference for City, but Clark believes the performance was good enough that they can go into the upcoming Old Firm game with confidence.
She said: “We were unlucky with the goals coming so quickly then so late towards the end but I thought we fought well as a team throughout the game.
“I thought we did really well and put in a good performance against a very tough team. Hopefully now we can take it in to Sunday’s game.”
Rangers have now gone four league games without scoring but Clark believes it is just a matter of time before the goals start flowing again.
She said: “We are creating chances but we need to do more with the ball in the final third. We are getting into good positions but it might just be a case of being more creative with it.”
As a defender, Clark’s main concern is to keep the ball out of the Rangers goal and she was full of praise for goalkeeper Jade Baillie.
She said: “She (Baillie) kept us in it a good few times and she is really good to have at the back.
“She’s a good communicator which really helps to calm us down as a backline.”
All attention now turns to this Sunday’s match against Celtic. The game will take place at New Tinto Park with Rangers looking for revenge after Celtic’s 3-1 win on the first day of the season. Kick off is scheduled for 2pm.
