Celtic and Glasgow City won through to next month’s SBS Scottish Women’s Premier League Cup Final.

Glasgow City were kept at bay by Spartans for almost an hour, in the first of the semi-final double-header at Forthbank Stadium.

The breakthrough came after 59 minutes as Costa Rica international Chinchilla slotted the ball into the far corner after a defence-splitting pass from fellow midfielder

Mairead Fulton sent Priscila Chinchilla through to slot home the opening goal, Hayley Lauder then  quickly doubling the advantage.

Spartans lost Louise Mason to a second yellow card late on and in added time Tyler Dodds cross was volleyed home by Chinchilla to make it 3-0.

Hibernian were bidding to reach a fifth SWPL Cup final in a row and took an early lead, Alexa Coyle setting up Rachael Boyle to net from the edge of the area.

Celtic were level at the start of the second half, Jacynta Galabadaarachchi beating Gabby English from outside the box and with ten minutes to go, the Hoops’ prolific Charlie Wellings found the top corner for a final score of 2-1.

The final is on Sunday 5 December, 4.10pm kick off and live on BBC ALBA. Partick Thistle’s Firhill Stadium is the venue and tickets (£8 Adults | £2 Concessions) are available here: scotwomensfootball.com/swpl-cup
