Thistle come off the back of a 1-1 draw against Hearts in a historic first top six point for the jags. A great showing from the Jags have the girls in loads of confidence as we welcome the green and white side of Glasgow for our next home match.

A result here for Brian Graham’s side would be massive as we face a strong Celtic side who are still chasing the tails of Glasgow City in first.

🆚 Our Opponents: Celtic

Celtic have had a great season, picking up 69 points so far in the league from a possible 84. Sitting in 2nd position, Fran Alonso’s side will be looking to secure all three points and keep up the pressure on both Glasgow City in first and Rangers in 3rd. Having suffered a loss against Rangers mid-week, they’ll be looking to bounce back immediately as they prepare for this Glasgow Derby.

The last meeting between the squads ended in a 2-0 defeat at the Excelsior Stadium in a tightly contested game between the sides. The Hoops came out on top in that tie despite Thistle’s great defensive display with a highly depleted squad in that tie a month ago.

📈Thistle so far

Thistle traveled through to the capital with plenty of confidence wanting to get revenge on a Hearts side that beat them 1-0 in the first half of the split just a few weeks prior. Having lost veteran defender Taylor McGlashan due to an injury in the warm up forcing Leah Robinson to start from the get-go, it was a difficult loss with McGlashan picking up player of the match in that reverse fixture at Petershill Park.

An early strike by Jenny Smith had the Jags trailing in the capital just seven minutes into the tie with the young forward capatilising off a Robinson error. The Jags kept the fight up against Hearts and eventually a goal by our Skipper Demi Falconer brought the game back to level terms in the second half with the game ending a goal a piece.

Brian Graham touched in his post match interview how he felt the girls deserved more, a similar theme against the Edinburgh side all season, yet how he was proud of the girls getting their first point in the top six. A signal of intent and how impressive the side has improved this season gaining this point in the top six, we’ll look to use that heading into the upcoming Glasgow Derby against Celtic on Sunday.

Strong followings from the Red and Yellow Army so far this season have really helped our girls. Your support has played a massive part helping the Jags and we hope to see as many of you as possible against Celtic at home on Sunday afternoon.

🗞 Team News

Abbie Ferguson is ruled out of this tie through ineligibility as she remains on loan from Celtic this season. Cheryl McCulloch also remains out for this clash as she continues her recovery from her ACL injury. A number of players picked up niggles and knocks in a battling performance against Hearts. A number played on and still gave their all for the shirt despite injury and will be assessed ahead of the match on Sunday. Manager Brian Graham will have to patch up a side to go and give their all against Celtic.
