Livingston‘s new signing Beth Mckay has made an instant impact on the Scottish Women’s Championship, scoring a brace for the league leaders in a close 3-2 win away to Glasgow side Rossvale.

The first half saw the midfielder score either side of a goal from Brogan Anderson. Then Rossvale came back strongly in the second half with a double from Mel Porter, but Livi saw out the final ten minutes to defend their lead and grab the three points.

The hard-fought victory tightens the West Lothian club’s grip on the league and keeps them in pole position for promotion to the SWPL, after second-placed Renfrew Ladies were comprehensively beaten by Ayr United in Cumnock.

Clare Docherty scored a brace for United, with further goals from Cameron, Barbour and Dick with a penalty in a result which lifts the side up to fourth.
