Buchan v Hamilton Academical – Match Preview – SWPL 2
Maud Juniors, 21 August 2016, Kick-off: 2pm
Buchan host Hamilton Academical as they look to get their season back on track, whilst Hamilton aim to close the gap on the top two.
Things aren’t going well for Buchan at the moment. They are still struggling to put points on the table, and in their past seven games, they have only won one point – a draw against Hutchison Vale. And, they’ve lost to the bottom two clubs Queen’s Park and Inverness City. For a while, it looked like sixth place was as low as they could go. But the resurgence in form from the bottom two means, points are needed.
Although there are no easy games in the SWPL 2, they maybe would not have wanted to face Hamilton who having beaten Hutchison Vale 5-2 are now looking to close the gap on the top two. Their title challenge, having been a contender the whole season, had dropped away after a series of losses to their rivals. But, now, it seems to be back and they need to win today to keep it all going.
Earlier in the season, Hamilton beat Buchan 5-2.
