Hearts (H)

This Sunday 18th December, PTWFC take on Hearts at Petershill for a 13:00 kick off.

Thistle come off the back of a 1-1 draw against Motherwell in the SWPL1 last weekend at K-Park in a hard fought game in some very cold conditions. Brian Graham’s girls took the point away from East Kilbride and will look to bring the fight to Hearts in our next league fixture.

A win for Brian Graham’s side would certainly provide a huge boost as we head into the break and it would guarentee fifth place in SWPL1 going into 2023.

🆚 Our Opponents: Hearts

Hearts have had a good start to their season thus far, picking up 22 points from a possible 36.

Gaining victories over Aberdeen, Motherwell and Hamilton Accies, like ourselves, Hearts currently lie in 4th place in the SWPL1, 1 place and 6 points above the Jags.

This is a game which would be a huge 3 points for the Jags as it would narrow the gap between 4th and 5th as well as increase the distance over Hibs and Motherwell below us, currently just a point behind.

In terms of club links between the squads, Taylor Hamill used to turn out for the Jambos, and she’ll be hoping to get the win against her former club come Sunday afternoon.

📈Thistle so far

A hard-fought draw against Motherwell last Friday night showed another level to Brian Graham’s girls work ethic. Tough conditions in the freezing cold at K-Park didn’t make it any easier for the Jags so to come away with a draw is something to be commended.

There were plenty of positives that can only point out good signs for jags as we look to continue the impressive start to the season.

Strong home followings from the Red and Yellow Army so far this season have really helped our girls, and hopefully more of the Thistle faithful come along to support their Jags this Sunday afternoon at Petershill. Be sure to wrap up warm as it expected to be a cold one!

🗞 Team News

A nearly full squad available this Sunday for the gaffer to choose from. Taylor McGlashan will miss out again but is making progress with her injury while Freya MacDonald joins McGlashan on the treatment table and will likely miss out.

After missing out against their old clubs both Jordan McLintock and Khym Ramsay return to the squad.

With Kaitlyn Canavan and Taylor FIsher making an impace off the bench last time out it will give the manager a variety of options to choose from, Brian Graham will hopefully look to use everything in his arsenal to take the 3 points on Sunday.
