Forfar Farmington v Spartans – Match Preview – SWPL 1

Station Park, 29 May, Kick-off: 1pm

Forfar Farmington’s recent turnaround in form has been one of the SWPL 1’s talking points.

They had been in serious trouble, bottom of the table without a single point – but they can count themselves unlucky that they don’t go into the match against Spartans in sixth place.

After beating Stirling University and Aberdeen (both by 2-0), they went into last week’s fixture against Celtic full of confidence – and only a controversial penalty decision saw Celtic beat them 3-2.

But they will need to put any disappointment behind them (or use it to motivate them!) as the take on Spartans.

There is no doubt that at the moment, you want to play Spartans at your home stadium, rather than Ainslie Park. Spartans has yet to score a single goal on their travels, let alone pick up a point whilst conceding 15 goals.

This is a record they clearly need to improve on as the season progress if they are going to finish high up the table.

There was some controversy in the earlier fixture between the two clubs as when the scores were level at 1-1, Forfar had Robyn Smith sent off. After an appeal, this was reduced to a yellow card. Spartans went on to win the game 3-1.

A Forfar win will see them overtake Spartans, possibly into fifth place. A large goal swing could see Spartans move up to fourth win a victory.
