United Stop Buddies Title Party / Scots Women Back On Track In World Cup
Written by RockSport Radio on April 11, 2018
DUNDEE UNITED 1 SAINT MIRREN 0
Billy King’s early strike gave Dundee United a victory at Tannadice that at least postpones St Mirren’s Championship title party.
Midfielder King slotted in a low cross from former Buddies winger Paul McMullan after only two minutes.
Danny Mullen fired against the United crossbar and St Mirren had most of the pressure in the second half.
But United goalkeeper Daniz Mehmet was rarely threatened and counterpart Craig Samson saved superbly from Sam Stanton.
SCOTLAND 3 POLAND 0
Relieved head coach Shelley Kerr admits Scotland Women must improve on their performance against Poland to reach the 2019 World Cup finals.
Late strikes in the final 11 minutes from Zoe Ness, Claire Elmslie and Erin Cuthbert sealed a 3-0 Scotland win.
Lee Alexander saved a Poland penalty with the scores level, and the visitors had Paulina Dudek dismissed.
“It’s a work in progress and we know that. Even though we’ve won the game we were very fortunate,” Kerr said.
“Lee was outstanding. We need to give the players feedback on the performance because if we want to do well we need to improve.”
