🆚 Our Opponents: Aberdeen

Aberdeen have had a good season so far sitting 7th in the SWPL1 with 19 points. Having also gained victory in the cup, manager Clinton Lancaster will be hoping to gain a crucial 3 points on the road and close the gap with the jags.

Having made a number of signings this January and bolstering their squad, Aberdeen will look to win their first league match of 2024 and push on as they try to secure a top 6 spot ahead of Thistle.

The Jags gained victory in convincing fashion in November as the girls won 3-1 away in Aberdeen in a midweek game that had a lot going against it. Great unity and character allowed the squad to achieve their win that night in a match that had Rosie Slater score her first goal for the club, and a goal of the season contender at that.

📈Thistle so far

Motherwell came to Petershill Park with a clear game plan as they deployed their 5 back formation and looked to frustrate the Jags with a counter attacking style of play.

The visitors took the lead through a Morgan Cross penalty after the young forward was fouled in the box by Clare Docherty. Thistle managed to pull one back as Emma Lawton scored against her former club bringing it back to equal footing before Cross managed to win yet another penalty with Bailey Collins converting in similar fashion.

Thistle came out for the second half with a fire lit below them and just a few minutes from the restart, Demi Falconer made the game 2-2 taking inspiration from John McGinn’s freekick goal against Manchester United as the tactic paid dividends. Within a couple of minutes, Amy Bulloch delivered another fantastic ball into the box as Rachel Donaldson got her head on it to give the Jags the lead. Bulloch completed her hat trick of assists later in the game, finding the head of our skipper Falconer once more and putting the game to bed.

Thistle have since drawn a home tie against the winners of Queen’s Park and Bonnyrigg Rose in the next round of the Women’s Scottish Cup with that match set to take place at Petershill Park on Sunday February 4th.

Strong Followings from the Red and Yellow army have helped our girls all season long. We hope to see as many of you for our next fixture on Sunday as we welcome Aberdeen.

✍️ Firepower added up front

The January transfer window is well and truly underway as another signing has joined the Jags. Prolific goalscorer Carla Boyce has joined PTW from Motherwell in a huge coup for Brian Graham’s side.

Boyce is well known for her goal scoring prowess, already having 7 goals this season including one against the Jags, and brings a wealth of experience to Thistle having had several international caps at youth level as well as experience in the women’s champions league with her former club Glasgow City.

🗞 Team News

New signings Rebecca McAllister and Carla Boyce are in contention to make their debut in Red and Yellow for Sunday’s match while Claire Adams has been working hard to return from the injury she suffered in November against Motherwell.

With this huge league match approaching alongside an important cup semi final next weekend, it will be up to Brian Graham and the rest of the management team to field the best possible side heading into this fixture.
