Rangers star Brianna Westrup is expecting a physical game in tomorrow’s SWPL Old Firm clash with Celtic as the Light Blues look to take a step closer to a historic league title.
After losing out to their Old Firm rivals when they met in the Scottish Cup earlier this month, Westrup and co need they need to do better if they are to keep on course for the title and end Glasgow City’s long-standing dominance of the women’s game in Scotland.
Westrup however is confident the Gers have enough quality in their squad to get the job done and pick up what would be a massive three points in the title race.
“They always give us a good test,” Westrup told Rangers TV. “We have obviously just played them quite recently so we are going to have to move on from that result and analyse things we can do better on the park and things we can neutralise in their team.
“You could look at it either way and think it’s a quick turnaround to play them again but on the other hand you could say it is a really good chance to put things right so all the girls will be looking forward to it.
“We have a good range of players of all ages and different experiences so I think that is good within the group to keep positivity high and have that resilient mindset.
“It is always a physical match and it comes down to who is clinical on the day – tactics might change from game to game depending on personnel. I think it is a game that you have to be willing to put in a physical performance, it is always a good battle and there’s quality on both sides of the ball so you have to be able to problem solve within the game.”
Tickets for Sunday’s Old Firm are priced at £5 for adults and £3 for concessions/juveniles and are available HERE
