MATCH PREVIEW: Glasgow Women (A)

This Sunday 25th September, PTWFC take on Glasgow Women at New Tinto Park for a 12pm kick off.

Thistle have accumulated 2 points so far this season heading into this Glasgow derby having faced a difficult challenge last time out against top of the table Rangers.

Thistle are looking to grab their first victory this season against bottom of the table Glasgow Women, who are enduring a tough start to their campaign following their promotion last season.

A win for either side would mean a lot at this early stage of the season in a match that will hopefully see the Thistle faithful follow the girls on the road.

🆚 Our Opponents: Glasgow Women

Glasgow Women have, as previously mentioned, endured a difficult start to their campaign this season failing to pick up a single point thus far.

Having lost against the likes of Motherwell, Dundee United and Rangers so far, our opponents will be looking to gain some momentum and earn their first victory since promotion last season.

In their promotion campaign, GWFC produced some impressive displays, ending the campaign with five wins on the bounce. They’ll be looking to rekindle that form going forward.

GWFC have a couple familiar faces within their ranks, with former jags Emma Craig and Mhari Lyle lining up for our opponents this season.

Several Jags have played for Glasgow Women before including Kaitlyn Canavan, scorer of their promotion deciding goal last season, Cara Henderson, winner of their Coaches’ and Players’ Player of the year awards, Leah Robinson, a part of their promotion winning squad and Taylor Hamill, who also spent time at the club.

The last time the two clubs faced each other, Thistle came out victorious in a 4-1 win at New Tinto, and having failed to score in their last two games, team manager Brian Graham will be hoping his team can recapture that form from that success in December 2020.

📈Thistle so far

A tough start to the campaign for Brian Graham’s team have saw them only picking up 2 points from a possible 15. There has been a lot of positives to take so far however, grabbing key points off Aberdeen and Spartans in away ties, both not easy places to go.

Linzi Taylor, fresh off winning PTWFC player of the month for August, has put in some impressive displays, alongside the likes of Clare Docherty and captain Demi Falconer as the team look to gel together following several new arrivals in the summer.

Following her arrival from Celtic a couple weeks ago, and an exciting cameo against Rangers midweek, Abbie Ferguson will look to get her first goal in Jags colours and to add to the 3 goals scored by Thistle so far this season

🗞 Team News

Against Glasgow Women, Thistle have a full squad available. With the recent addition of Charlotte Terry and Abbie Ferguson, there is a lot of competition for places with starting spots up for grabs as Brian Graham looks to pick the squad that will hopefully bring the 3 points back to Petershill.
