K-Park, 26 June 2016, Kick-Off: 2pm
Celtic look to gain revenge for an earlier defeat against Stirling University at K-Park.
Celtic are currently trying to chase down the top two in the SWPL 1, and with the gap being seven points, they go into each game knowing they have to win if they have any hope of a top-two finish. Lose, any then they could be caught by Spartans.
Their form has been good, winning four out their past six matches – but the issue they are facing is in chasing down the top two is finding a way to beat Glasgow City and Hibernian. Those two games in that run they’ve not won were 3-2 defeats to the top two.
Three of the games they’ve lost have been against City and Hibs – the other game they’ve lost was against Stirling University.
That came back in April when Celtic had taken a late lead, but Stirling scored twice in second-half stoppage time to pick up their first win of the season.
Stirling would have wanted to have built upon that win, but they lost their next four games until their next and, to date, last win against Rangers.
They know, that if they can pick up a point, there is a chance they’ll finish the first half of the season off the bottom of the table.
