Jeanfield Swifts v Buchan – Match Preview – SWPL2
McDiarmid Park, Kick-Off: 4pm
Jeanfield Swifts host Buchan as they look to build upon the goalless draw they had with Hutchison Vale last Sunday.
They currently sit in sixth, but after the opening day, they did sit top of the SWPL 2 table having beaten Queen’s Park 5-1 on their debut at McDiarmid Park. This was followed by two straight defeats to Hamilton and Hearts – although, admittedly, they are the top two sides in the league at the moment.
Having built a partnership with St Johnstone which allows Jeanfield to play at McDiarmid Park this season, they will be looking to make their new stadium into a fortress.
Buchan sit in third place and will be looking to close the gap on the top. So far, they’ve only lost one game in the league this season, when they lost 3-1 away to Glasgow Girls at the start of April. But their other two results have all been impressive: a 3-0 win over Hutchison Vale and a 5-0 win over Inverness City.
Due to the closeness of the middle section, a win for both sides will improve their standing. Jeanfield can move up to third with a win, whilst Buchan can climb to second with a victory.
