Livingston Women’s boss Paul Jaconelli is hoping his side can go on a lengthy winning run after making it two Championship South victories on the bounce.

The Lionesses have recovered well from their Championship Cup exit a fortnight ago to Ayr United and strolled to a 4-1 home win over Clyde on Sunday to climb into third place in the table.

That result came off the back of a stunning 11-1 triumph over Gleniffer Thistle last weekend.

Goals from Jen Dodds and Ashley Fish had the hosts firmly in control before a Shannon Mulligan double wrapped up the points.

The only blemish came as the visitors netted a late consolation.

Jaconelli said: “Maybe the Ayr game was a wee jolt to them because it was a sub-par performance and they’ve bounced back tremendously well since.

“There’s been plenty of positives to take and now hopefully we can get a bit of momentum and really push for that top spot.

“It was a really commanding display from the first whistle and we could have won by a lot more.”

Sunday’s three goalscorers have now combined for 29 goals in Livi’s opening 11 games this term with Fish leading the way on 12, followed by Dodds (nine) and Mulligan (eight).

And while Jaconelli knows the trio are going to be crucial to their promotion hopes, he knows his side won’t be heavily reliant on them.

He added: “Those three and the goals they can score are going to be vital for us this season but there’s goal-scoring ability all over the park and that’s crucial.

“It’s great to have two or three who are going to score plenty but when you’ve got a fair few others chipping in it helps ease the pressure.”

Livi are next in action on Sunday when they travel to BSC Glasgow, still without injured centre-back Tash Frew.

Jaconelli said: “Tash is a player we miss in the side but the confidence we’ve built in the last couple of games is hopefully something that can carry us forward.”
