The result sees Spartans open up a five point gap in fourth place over fellow Edinburgh outfit Hibernian with just two games of the extended season to go. Going into the match, Spartans hadn’t lost in the SWPL to the hosts however they were staring defeat in the eye at the interval despite making most of the early running.
