Tartan Kicks’ Featured Match
Hearts Academy at Heriot-Watt University, 19 June 2016, Kick-Off: 2pm
Third-placed Hearts host the third-highest scoring SWPL 2 side Jeanfield Swifts.
Hearts will be hoping to take advantage of any slip-ups by Hamilton and Glasgow Girls, but will have to do it against a difficult opponent. They’ve got their title race back on tracks having won their past matches against Buchan and Inverness City.
To make it three wins in a row though will be hard, and they will take confidence from beating St Roch’s 3-0 in the Scottish Cup.
Jeanfield Swifts sit in fourth place, seven points behind Hearts – but this was after pushing Hamilton all the way in a thrilling game. They’ve recorded the biggest win in the SWPL this season, beating Queen’s Park 13-0, and they possess a dangerous attacking unit.
In the Scottish Cup, Jeanfield beat Ross County 18-0.
Earlier in the season, Hearts became the first side to beat Jeanfield at their new home, McDiarmid Park, beating them 4-1.
A Hearts’ victory could see them move up to first whilst Jeanfield has a chance of cutting the gap to the top three down to four points.
