WOMEN'S FOOTBALL: Shel makes boss plea.

Byline: GINNY CLARK

KILMARNOCK star Shelly Kerr admits being without a manager could see their title bid slip away.

Killie face League champions Hibs on Sunday in what is - even at this early stage - a crucial clash.

But Scotland and Killie defender Kerr, who has taken on much of the responsibility in the absence of a boss, fears their dream is being derailed.

She said: 'We have the talent but not having someone at the helm is beginning to prove costly.

'There's still a long way to go but the game against Hibs is crucial and we're determined to get back into the title race.

'We desperately need a new boss. Our last manager Jim Chapman's coaching ability was second to none and it's going to be difficult finding a boss with a similar calibre.'

Hibs will be in confident mood following their 6-5 defeat of wannabe giant-killers Newburgh in last week's Premier League Cup semi-final.

The capital club will face Raith in the final at the end of this month after Eddie Doig's side beat Hamilton 4-1.

#SCOTLAND skipper Julie Fleeting fired Arsenal into the semi-finals of the UEFA Women's Cup with last gasp goal against Italian champs Torres.

The Gunners face Djurgarden of Sweden in the semi-finals in April.
