FC Edinburgh unbeaten run continues with dramatic comeback at Meadowbank
FC Edinburgh are now 22 games unbeaten in Scottish Women’s League One after seeing off a strong challenge from Westdyke at home.
In the final game before Scotland’s fourth tier splits into top and bottom six, the league leaders had to work hard to rescue a point against the northeast club at Meadowbank after Westdyke had gone 2-0 up with lobbed goals from Bethany Cochrane and Lyndsey Brown. Edinburgh winger Jayden Simmons pulled one back with a solo effort before Edinburgh captain Danielle Forsyth was adjudged to have been impeded in the box and Emma Mitchell produced a clinical penalty to equalise.
