RANGERS Head Coach Amy McDonald says her side need to be on top form for the whole 90 minutes as they take on SWPL league leaders Glasgow City this Sunday.

McDonald says that preparations ahead of the game have gone well and her side are showing a real focus and determination ahead of the rearranged league match.

The coach admits her side must be on top form throughout the match to deal with the quality of reigning champions Glasgow City.

She said: “Preparations have gone really well. We know we face a tough task given the quality Glasgow City have, so we need to be prepared for the challenge that’s ahead of us. All the girls have bought into that and have been really focused.

“We need to be able to focus for the 90 minutes. They are a difficult side and they have got quality all over the pitch.

“We know with the quality and calibre of player that they have, we need to be able to stop them playing.”

Rangers returned to winning ways last weekend in the league, with Jade Gallon’s second half goal enough to get past Spartans.

The coach believes the Gers need to build on the positives they showed in their performance last weekend but also from the second half of their SWPL Cup game against City just a couple of weeks ago.

McDonald explained: “The Spartans game has given us confidence and competitiveness.

“We also need to take our second half performance in the semi-final on board as we played much better, so we need to take these experiences and hopefully get 90 minutes of a good performance.”

Glasgow City ran out 5-1 winners in the cup against the Gers a fortnight ago, scoring four goals in the first half.

Last weekend Glasgow City smashed eight goals past Motherwell in a ruthless performance and McDonald knows Rangers needed to be at their very best to compete.

She continued: “Given the result against Motherwell we know we need to be at our best to get anything from the game.

“Preparations are the same. We always look at the opponents, we analyse them and try to get the most decent footage to show the girls. It’s the same for every opposition. We can’t take any team for granted in the SWPL”.

Rangers face league leaders Glasgow City at Petershill Park this Sunday, kick-off 14:10.
