Match Preview


This Sunday 12th February, PTWFC take on Hearts at Petershill Park for a 18:00 kick off. 

Thistle come off the back of an 1-0 win against Hamilton Accies in a hard-fought victory in the SWPL1. Brian Graham’s girls bounced back brilliantly following a rocky spell in the league. The squad will now be turning their attention over to this Scottish Cup tie as we look to recreate last season’s heroics and recreate another memorable cup run, having made it to the semi-finals last season.

A result here for Brian Graham’s side would be massive as we look to make the next round of the cup and overcome this strong Hearts side.

🆚 Our Opponents: Hearts

Hearts have had a good season thus far, picking up 30 points from a possible 54 in SWPL1.

The Edinburgh side were also defeated semi-finalists last season and will be looking, like us, for another cup run.

Last time out, Hearts walked away from Petershill park with a 2-1 win so our girls will be hoping to come out on top in this tie.

📈Thistle so far

A difficult last few weeks for Thistle, yet our girls responded valiantly grabbing all 3 points on Wednesday evening. It was a scrappy affair for both sides, but the girls fought right to the end and secured the victory.

Cara Henderson scored yet another goal this season as she continues to improve week after week. Alongside this, Abbie Ferguson has got herself another involvement as she put in the perfect cross, on her weak foot, for Henderson to head home.

This is exactly what the squad needed to get a confidence boost and get themselves fired up heading into the later stages of the season. Hopefully another performance just like Hamilton is on the horizon and we can progress into the next round of the cup.

Strong followings from the Red and Yellow Army so far this season have been huge for our girls, and hopefully more can be seen under the floodlights at Petershill on Sunday evening.

🗞 Team News

A similar squad should be available for our management team this Sunday evening. Goalkeeper Khym Ramsay will miss out so Lauren Grant has been recalled on an 7 day emergency recall from her loan at Queens Park as cover. A touch of rotation may be on Brian Graham’s mind once more as we head into this cup fixture. Our girls are raring to go once again as we look to carry on, recreate that famous Hibs result under the floodlights and make it into the next round of the cup.
