Stirling University v Rangers – Match Preview – SWPL 1

Stirling University, 29 May, Kick-off: 4pm

The late kick-off sees Stirling University take on Rangers.

It’s incredible how a club’s fate and position can change over such a short period of time. A fortnight ago, Stirling was in sixth place, with a decent goal difference and looking to climb the table. Going into today’s match, they are bottom with the league’s second worst goal difference. And they are three points away from seventh place, with an unrealistic chance of catching them today.

Not only do they have to win today and make a seven-goal swing on seventh-placed Forfar, they know that Forfar plays Spartans at home, and Spartans are yet to even score away from home.

But, moving up the table can wait for another day. What they need to do is win today. Their only victory of the season came at home when they beat Celtic 2-1. They will be hoping to repeat that performance today.

Their opponents Rangers are in a bit of a slump. Three wins in a row had seen them climb up to second place, but a SWPL Cup loss and two league defeats to Glasgow City and Hibernian has seen them drop down to fourth and are now fewer points away from bottom-placed Stirling than they are to the leaders Glasgow City.

However, the majority of their wins have come at home, and they can go into today’s match, full of confidence having beating Stirling 4-1 earlier in the season.
