CHANTELLE Brown was pleased to be back amongst the goals after she scored against Hibernian on Sunday but admitted that the first half performance was the team’s downfall as they lost 4-1.

She said: “I am a bit disappointed with the first half; I don’t think we got on the ball as much as we did when we played against Hibs on Wednesday night but we came out in the second half and upped our performance.

“I was really happy to score and get the team back on track and we were unlucky not to pull more goals back.”

Rangers dominated the closing stages of the match and Brown had some of Rangers’ best chances as she forced Hibs’ keeper Jenna Fife into a fingertip save and saw her spectacular volley from the edge of the box fly inches wide.

The youngster believes that if Rangers had mounted this pressure earlier, the outcome of the match could have been different.

She said: “I think that if we had got our goal earlier in the second half, it could have been a bit different because we really pushed right until the end, unfortunately, it wasn’t good enough today.”

Rangers look to make it three wins out of three against rivals Celtic when they face then on Sunday, and Brown is relishing the challenge.

She said:

“It would be amazing to win against Celtic. We have already beaten them twice this season, so we just need one more win.

“We will rest and recover, go about our training and do analysis. We know that they’ve strengthened from the last time we played and it’s going to be tougher but we have to just let the game come to us.”

Rangers travel to K-Park, East Kilbride for the penultimate SWPL match, as they face Celtic, KO 2pm.
