Forfar Farmington 0
Forfar Farmington head coach Damon Neish was disappointed after a 4-0 defeat at home to Celtic on Sunday.
Neish said: “We were poor, we never executed well, we gave them too much respect, we stood off them too much and let them play a bit too much.”
“We’re still young and growing and when you come against some of the bigger teams like Celtic, you’re punished at this level and that’s what we need to try and get through our heads that we need to be better from the start.”
“Next week is away to Hibs, another tough one at the start of the season.”
Farmington started with just one change to the side, with Sophie Milligan coming in for the injured Sydney Cairns. Kayleigh Noble and Megan Burns returned on the bench.
Celtic had the best of the opening 10 minutes, with Kylla Sjoman and Sam McManus firing wide before Kirstin McGuire forced Fiona McNicoll into a save in the 14th minute.
The Glasgow side took the lead after 18 minutes, Ruesha Littlejohn firing home after good work by Sjoman down the left.
Cara McBrearty had two chances in quick succession saved by McNicoll as Celtic looked for a second.
They got that in the 29th minute when Littlejohn spotted McNicoll off her line and lobbed her from 30 yards.
Farmington’s first chance was after half an hour. Derrian Gollan had a shot from the edge of the box saved by Laura Hamilton.
Just before half time, Joanne Paton rattled the crossbar for Celtic while Chloe Craig saw a header cleared off the line five minutes into the second period.
McBrearty was next to go close, seeing her effort hit the post as Forfar’s defence battled a strong attack.
Holly Napier saw a free kick held by Hamilton while Celtic added a third in the 62nd minute, McManus sweeping home Sjoman’s cross.
Napier fired wide from long range with Forfar starting to play better in the last half hour. Despite this Littlejohn missed three chances as she looked to complete her hat trick.
Littlejohn grabbed her third with four minutes left, curling a low shot past McNicoll.
The side now look to next week, when they travel to face Hibernian.
