Inverness City v Hearts – Match Preview – SWPL 2

Millburn Academy, 29 May, Kick-off: 12:30pm

Bottom placed Inverness City host Hearts, looking to really kick-start their season.

So far, it has been another painful season for Inverness City, still on just one point after their first eight games and is really needing momentum if they have any chance of escaping the relegation places. Luckily for them, they are playing at home.

Their defensive performances home and away has been somewhat Jekyll and Hyde. At home,they’ve conceded just nine times whilst away, they’ve conceded 29 times. Take their results against Hamilton Academical. At home, they lost 5-3 whilst away at New Douglas Park, they lost 11-0. And of course, their only point came in a draw with Hutchison Vale.

The last time Hearts faced a long trip up north, they drew with Buchan 2-2 and Inverness will hope for something similar. However, Hearts will be looking to retake first sport in the SWPL 2.

The title race sees three sides (Hamilton, Glasgow Girls and Hearts) separated by just one point. Having beaten Buchan 4-1 last week, it saw Hearts end a run of two games where they picked up just one point as they dropped from first down to third.

And they will go into the game, full of confidence having beaten Inverness 7-1 in the reverse fixture earlier on in the season.

An Inverness win could see them overtake Queen’s Park into seventh place, whilst Hearts will require a win to move up to first, and hope that Glasgow Girls and Hamilton drop points. If they drew, they would require Hamilton to lose by 11 goals to overtake them, whilst they would move about Glasgow Girls if they lost, due to their superior goal difference.
