Aberdeen v Celtic – Match Preview – SWPL 1

Heathryfold Park, 30 October 2016, Kick-off: 1pm

Aberdeen host Celtic in their final game of the season in which Susan Murray will play her final game for Aberdeen.

Susan Murray has played for Aberdeen for 22 years, an astonishing feat for which the club will look to recognise with a guard of honour before the match – but most of all, a victory.

There is no way of saying otherwise, but it has been a very disappointing season for Aberdeen, a side that was expected to challenge for the top three places at the start of the season. After the mid-season break, it looked like they could get relegated. But wins over Spartans and Forfar Farmington turned out to be enough to be secured of their SWPL 1 place next season.

Celtic, on the other hand, have secured third place. However, they are 13 points behind second placed Hibernian and they would have hoped to have closed the gap on the top two. Over the season, they’ve only lost to Glasgow City, Hibernian and Stirling University. Last Sunday, they beat Spartans 1-0, however, they had to wait late on for Suzanne Mulvey to score a last-gasp winner.

Celtic have won both games against Aberdeen in the SWPL 1 this season, winning 1-0 back in May before beating them 5-0 in August.
