AMY MCDONALD is confident that her team are ready to secure three points this Sunday when they host Stirling University at New Tinto Park.

Just one point currently stands between Rangers and Stirling in the league table with the Gers in fifth place and the Dark Greens a place above. 

McDonald believes the small gap between the two teams has left Rangers feeling eager to secure a win this weekend.

She said: “We have been really focused on what type of football we think Stirling will play and who their key players are.

“We are just continuing to prepare to make sure we are sharp for the game”.

Last time out, Rangers beat Stirling University 4-2 at home last August, which lead the Gers into the quarter final of the SSE Scottish Cup.

However, league matches have been a much closer affair and McDonald believes it will be a different type of game on Sunday since Stirling’s new manager, Barry Rodgers, has stepped in.

She continued:  “Since we last played them they have strengthened and got new players but hopefully if we do everything we can to prepare we will come away with the win”.

Despite Rangers’ last two defeats this season against Hibs, McDonald ensures it has not left the Light Blues feeling disheartened.

She said: “We have played all the teams in the top three this season, we need to try and fix the mistakes we made against Hibs but this is a different type of game for us.

“Hopefully if we do everything we can and continue to prepare this week we will come away with the win”.

McDonald says her players need to remain focused during this weekend’s game to ensure a win and to move up on the league table.

She added: “Stirling have got strong players so we need to create more opportunities to make sure we get points.

“These are the games we need to gain momentum and pick up the points so hopefully we can do that this weekend”.
