Match Preview


This Sunday 5th March, PTWFC take on Aberdeen at Petershill Park for a 13:00 kick off.  Entry is FREE for all.

Thistle come off the back of a 5-0 defeat against Rangers in the SWPL1. The girls put in an inspiring performance against the Gers, one that was reflected harshly against the scoreline, as we look to take positives from that game and use them against Aberdeen on Sunday.

A result here for Brian Graham’s side would be massive as we look to move back into the top 6 and solidify our ambitions.

Highlights and reaction post match

Our Opponents: Aberdeen

Aberdeen have had a tough season thus far, picking up 15 points so far in the SWPL1 from a possible 60.

Sitting in 10th position, 3 places and 10 points below the jags, they’ll be looking to grab all three points when they make the trip having gained some confidence following their draw with Hibernian mid-week.

The previous match between the clubs ended in a 2-2 draw in Aberdeen in what was a good showing for the Jags as the team started to gel together at the beginning of the season.

Thistle so far

The high scoring defeat against Rangers was tough yet plenty of positives were to be seen from the jags. They went out there and put in a great performance from the start of the match till the final whistle. Facing a team that had only conceded 5 goals thus far, Thistle made a real effort to thwart the Rangers backline and were unlucky to not get on the scoresheet. Some early penalty drama followed by two very early substitutions due to injury meant that it was always going to be an uphill battle, yet the girls did themselves proud.

Brian Graham spoke about this at the end of the game, highlighting just how pleased he was with his squad. He had a lot of praise for Abbie Ferguson, who continues to improve during her loan spell from Celtic, as well as Claire Adams, who was subbed on early in the first half having just returned following a spell on the sidelines. He couldn’t have asked for more from his team and they made him proud.

Strong followings from the Red and Yellow Army so far this season have really helped our girls, and there’s not a time more important for the Thistle faithful to come along and support their Jags.Your support could really make the difference in the push for top six. There is free entry for everyone on Sunday and we want to have as many fans in the park as we can. Let’s fill Petershill.

Team News

After the tough game on Wednesday, our management team have a tough task ahead of them to select the top squad come Sunday. Rebecca McGowan and Cheryl McCulloch were both forced into early substitutions on Wednesday therefore both look like doubts for this fixture.

Megan Cunningham has returned following her emergency 7-day recall by Rangers last week and is raring to go for this fixture. With that being said, it is now up to our girls to put on a performance to be proud of and hopefully get back into the top-6.
