Match Preview


This Wednesday 3rd May, PTWFC take on Hearts at Oriam Sports Performance Centre for a 19:30 kick off.

Thistle come off the back of a 2-0 defeat against Glasgow City in a difficult match that ended in defeat against the table toppers. The girls are looking to use the positives from this match and get prepared to travel to the capital for the final time this season.

A result here for Brian Graham’s side would be massive as we face a Hearts side we have failed to beat so far this season. This is a huge opportunity for the girls to get revenge having faced very close ties between the sides all season

🆚 Our Opponents: Hearts

Hearts have had a good season, picking up 45 points so far in the league from a possible 81.

Sitting in 4th position, Eva Olid’s side will be looking to secure all three points and continue their undefeated streak against the Jags this season. Having gained a recent draw against Rangers, they’ll look to use that momentum as they return home for this match against Brian Graham’s side.

The last meeting between the squads ended in a 1-0 defeat at Petershill Park in a tightly contested game between the sides. In a historic first game of the top 6 of the SWPL1 for the Jags, the Jam Tarts got the victory however our girls will look to right their wrongs heading into this fixture. We do know that Hearts will be without one of their star players in the form of Katie Rood as she announced she suffered, similar to Cheryl McCulloch, a season ending ACL injury and we wish her well in her recovery.

📈Thistle so far

Thistle knew it would be a tough match against Glasgow City at Petershill Park on Sunday however went in with confidence and with a clear game plan. In cold, wet and windy conditions as well as keeping the side at bay for most of the match, an unfortunate goal just on the brink of half time by Prades Insa left the Jags trailing.

Another scrappy goal by Lauren Davidson in the second half sealed Thistle’s fate. As previously mentioned, there were plenty of positives and it was an even game for most of the contest showing just how far the Jags have come this season.

With Brian Graham unwell for Sunday’s tie, assistant manager Ross Stormonth took charge of the contest and touched on how proud he was after the match. As we approach the final set of fixtures in this busy May schedule, it’ll be up to the girls to show a good account of themselves starting here against Hearts.

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 through in the capital this Wednesday evening.

🗞 Team News

Cheryl McCulloch remains out for this clash as she continues her recovery from her ACL injury. Rebecca McGowan came off the bench against Glasgow City getting a solid half an hour of action as she recovers from her injury. Other than that it appears to be the same squad news that faced the league leaders on Sunday afternoon.

Our management squad now have the task of selecting the strongest squad available as we approach this match in the Park’s Motor Group SWPL.
