This Sunday 30th April, PTWFC take on Glasgow City at Petershill Park for a 12:10 kick off.
Thistle come off the back of a 3-1 defeat against Hibs in a tough match that ended in defeat in the capital. The girls are looking to put the result in the past and get prepared to take on the current table toppers.
A result here for Brian Graham’s side would be massive as we face a Glasgow City side that has lost their last three in all competitions. This is a huge opportunity for the girls to add to the misery having suffered a heavy defeat during the last meeting at Petershill Park between the sides.
Glasgow City have had a great season, picking up 68 points so far in the league from a possible 78.
Sitting in 1st position, Leanne Ross’ side will be looking to secure all three points and get back into form. Having suffered recent losses to Celtic and Rangers having previously been undefeated, they’ll look to grab the victory as their title rivals close in on them.
The last meeting between the squads ended in a 8-1 defeat at Petershill Park in a difficult game for the Jags. It is worth noting however that current joint top scorer Rachel Donaldson added another to her tally in that game with another goal of the season contender as she struck the ball from distance and into the back of the Glasgow City net
Thistle started the tie against Hibs in fantastic fashion dominating from the start and grabbing the lead through Cara Henderson, who scored her 9th goal of the season making her tied with Rachel Donaldson as top scorer as things stand. With Henderson hitting the bar with a free kick from distance as well, Thistle looked to be on the right track and bring all three points back to Glasgow with them.
However, less than a minute into the second half Hibs would level it up before adding a further two goals to leave the final score 3-1 to the Hibees. Brian Graham spoke about this in his post-match reaction talking about how it was sloppy errors that caused the Jags to drop the points. While the result is a negative, if the girls perform like they did in the first half, then there is a bright future ahead for the Jags.
Strong followings from the Red and Yellow Army so far this season have really helped our girls. Your support has played a massive part in this historic season so it would be great to have as many fans as possible along to Petershill Park for this upcoming Glasgow Derby in the SWPL.
Cheryl McCulloch remains out for this clash as she continues her recovery from her ACL injury. Rebecca McGowan returned with a brief cameo off the bench against Hibs and has been working to make progress as she recovers from her injury. Clare Docherty returns from her two-match suspension and will be looking to return to the starting eleven this weekend.
Our management squad now have the task of selecting the strongest squad available as we approach this match in the Park’s Motor Group SWPL

PARTICK THISTLE 1
GLASGOW CITY 3
(Taylor O.G., 9′) (Davidson, 19′) (Chinchilla, 78′)
After a blank weekend Thistle returned to action with the visit of league leaders Glasgow City to Petershill Park. There was a welcome boost for Thistle ahead of the tough challenge that awaited them with the return from suspension of Clare Docherty, Docherty slotting straight back into the right back that she has filled with such distinction all season.
There was no gentle introduction back for Docherty as City, reeling from three straight defeats, set out to establish an early advantage. Megan Cunningham, who would pick up the match sponsors Player of the Match award, demonstrated good positioning and handling to save a well struck effort from Prades Insa while Chinchilla found the Thistle keeper as equally difficult to get the ball past when she was presented with an opportunity inside the box.
In general though, and despite City seeing the lion’s share of possession, the Thistle defence were able to restrict the opportunities that came the way of the away side. Captain Demi Falconer was leading by example in the heart of the Thistle defence and one perfectly judged challenge inside the Thistle box halted a City attack with the referee quite correctly ignoring the frantic City appeals for a penalty.
As much as City were doing the bulk the attacking it was anything but one way traffic in the opening 45 minutes with Thistle coming forward whenever they could. A Cara Henderson shot came close and the same player nearly got clear in behind the City rear guard during Thistle’s best spell in the game.
With the first half deep into injury time it looked as if Thistle would go into the dressing room at the interval with a merited 0-0 score. It was cruel then that City, after an admittedly concerted period of pressure, netted the game’s opening goal almost right on the stroke of half-time when Prades Insa’s shot from the edge of the box beat Cunningham.
City were a whisker away from doubling their lead early in the second half when Davidson saw her shot come off the base of Cunningham’s right-hand post with Chinchilla lashing the rebound high over the crossbar.
Just before the hour mark though City were able to score a decisive second goal when Davidson fired home after Thistle had done well to clear Motlhalo’s effort off the line.
Chinchilla spurned a great opportunity in front of the Thistle goal as City looked to press home their advantage and Cunningham made an excellent stop in tipping a long range effort from Lauder over the bar.
This Thistle side rarely if ever stop fighting and although it was becoming increasingly likely that the points would be going the way of City, Thistle fought right to the very end and the pace of substitute of Imogen Longcake nearly got her clear of the City defence, but she was tackled before managing to get an effort on target.
Despite the defeat this was another brave display from a Thistle side who continue to be competitive in the top six.
