Cunningham credits sensational Celts


Megan Cunningham

While the Celts hit Hibs for three in Sunday’s vital win that took them to second place, Megan Cunningham between the sticks for Celtic kept the visitors at bay and says sealing a victory over one of the top two is invaluable in terms of their belief.

Cunningham raved about her teammates’ efforts against rivals Hibs and said that they did it by playing their own game.

“I’m buzzing, we played really well today. It was different for us being in a position where we are ahead and I think we stuck to the game plan today.

“Credit to the girls - I thought they were all excellent, really dug deep and played really well and I can’t fault anyone. It was great to get the victory,” she said.

While Celtic recorded their first win against Hibs in over five years, Cunningham’s cleansheet also proved just as significant, with the stopper producing brave and impressive saves to thwart the visitors when they did create. And with this, she also believes they can take further confidence.

“Everyone gave 100% and we looked like we were in complete control when we were 3-0 up. Hibs didn’t really create much today which isn’t like them, they’ve been known to take a few goals off of us and we have a history of losing to them so it was good to see out the game and get the win.” Cunningham told.

Ahead of Celtic’s second v first tie with Glasgow City a few weeks ago, Cunningham had commented that a result against City would really open up the league, and while it wasn’t to be that evening in Lennoxtown, the keeper thinks the victory over Hibs may be signal a turn in the tide, while keeping her feet on the ground.

“There’s a long way to go, but for us to get over the hurdle of beating one of the top two teams is massive for us in terms of our confidence and belief.

“We were just falling short and not getting the luck of the ball or decisions against us that would just stop us getting over the line, but now that we’ve beaten them once and shown that we can compete at that level it’s about getting used to playing at that level all the time. There’s a long way to go, but it stands us in good stead an put us in that second spot,” she smiled.

Celtic now play Spartans at home on Thursday May 15 at K-Park, East Kilbride. KO: 7pm.
