Stirling University v Aberdeen – SBS SWPL 1 Preview

Stirling University, Kick-off: 2pm

In the first of the games in the relegation battle, Stirling University host Aberdeen.

Last Sunday’s win against Hamilton Academical kept the relegation battle going for one more week at least. The gap has been reduced to four points with two games, and with Aberdeen playing two hours before Accies, they know that a win could put real pressure on their rivals.

With Aberdeen playing Glasgow City next Sunday, they will know that they will need a win to have a good chance of beating the drop – but anything is possible in a relegation battle so they will just be focusing on keeping their hopes alive to the next week.

Aberdeen has not picked up a point on their travels this season – but they do have one bit of hope in that their two wins against their opponents have come at Stirling.

Stirling University themselves have their own battle. They are sitting in fourth place ahead of Spartans, but only on goal difference. And to make things more exciting, they know a win could keep their hopes for third alive – depending on if Celtic lose their match.

It makes for an exciting encounter.
