Heathryfold Park, 26 June 2016, Kick-Off: 1pm
Aberdeen host SWPL 1 leaders Glasgow City this afternoon with the visitors looking to get their season back on track, and hold onto first.
The host Aberdeen goes into the match knowing that after beating Forfar Farmington last Sunday, they cannot finish any lower than their current position of sixth. But, if they win, they could possibly move up to fifth place.
Whatever the result is, Aberdeen knows that they need to improve on their consistency after the mid-season break. An example of this was sandwiched in between strong wins against Spartans and Forfar Farmington was a heavy 8-0 defeat to Hibernian.
I did not expect to be writing these words at the start of June, but Glasgow City needs to win to stay on top of the SWPL 1. City’s loss to Spartans and Hibs’ mid-week win over Stirling has reduced the gap between first and second down to now just two points.
And Aberdeen is perhaps not the opposition they would have picked, with both of the matches between the two sides ending in 1-0 wins to City.
But they will have had a week to get the defeat out of their systems and will be looking to end the first half of the season with a win, and on top.
