Hibernian v Forfar Farmington – SWPL 1 – Match Preview

Albyn Park, 26 June 2016, Kick-Off: 1pm

Hibernian host Forfar Farmington this afternoon with a chance to go top of the SWPL 1.

June has been an astonishing month for Hibernian, having won the SWPL Cup and with a real chance of ending the month on top of the table.

Win this game, then they could go into the mid-season in first place.

Since losing to Glasgow City at the beginning of May, Hibs’ form has been spectacular. They’ve won their past five SWPL 1 games, scoring 26 goals without conceding a single goal. They’ve bounced back from a setback with the form you expect from a title challenger.

Forfar Farmington is fighting at the other end of the league at the moment. There is a possibility they could end the first half of the season in the relegation place, but that does not mean that this will be a walkover for Hibernian.

You only have to look at the fact Stirling has beaten Celtic and Spartans has beaten City to realise any team can beat any team in the SWPL 1. Forfar would have more than their six points if they had a bit more luck, including their narrow defeat to Celtic. And they will be looking to get over the disappointment of their past three defeats.

This is the third time these sides have met this season. In the SWPL Cup, Hibs beat Forfar 6-0 and in the league, Hibs won 3-1.
