Greenfield Football Complex, Kick-Off: 12pm
Glasgow Girls welcome Inverness City, strengthened by the recent signing of Maxine Fury from Claremont.
Glasgow Girls have had a good start on the SWPL 2, picking up six points out of a possible 12. Their season began with a defeat to Hutchison Vale, in a close game where they would have been disappointed not to have taken at least a point. But they responded with two victories in the league against Queen’s Park and Buchan, but this run was ended by last Sunday’s defeat to league leaders Hamilton Academical.
Having won the First Division last season, Glasgow Girls went into the season with confidence, but aware of the strength of the league will start to see the importance of picking up points. With just four games into the season, the top two and bottom two are looking isolated – and if this pattern continues, Glasgow Girls will look to be closer to the top two than the bottom.
Inverness City is in the bottom two, and due to their goal difference, they will most likely remain there regardless of Sunday’s result. But, we are far too early in the season to start for Inverness to get worried, and what will be more on City’s manager’s Karen Mason’s mind will be getting back to that winning feeling.
Their last win in league football still stretches back to the 5th October 2014 when they beat Buchan 5-3 in the 2014 SWPL. But, they don’t sit in the SWPL 2 with no points, having picked up a 1-1 draw against Hutchison Vale. Unfortunately, so far this season, they have not been impressive on their travels. At home, they lost 5-3 to Hamilton in a topsy-turvy game, and their draw against HHutchisonVale was at home. Away, they’ve lost 7-0 to Hearts and 5-0 to Buchan.
Glasgow Girls can move up to third with a victory, whilst Inverness can possibly move up to sixth if they win.
