Hearts v Hamilton Academical – Scottish Women’s Cup Third Round

King’s Park, Kick-off: 2pm

Hearts and Hamilton met last Sunday in the SWPL 2, and today, they meet in the Scottish Women’s Cup, and it will be another intriguing game.

These are two sides fighting for the SWPL 2 title and are currently holding in second and third position, although Hamilton has fallen further behind.

Last Sunday, the two sides played out a tense game which was decided by a late penalty for Heart, and this was evident of the importance of the match in both team’s season. Hamilton has now lost two games in a row against title rivals, including the leaders Glasgow Girls.

Both teams are dangerous going forward, with Hearts scoring 46 goals in the league with Hamilton scoring two more. This will be the third time these two sides have met in the league, with both matches ended in Hearts wins.

In the First Round. Hearts managed to be the SWFL Second Division South side St Roch’s. Hamilton had the harder tie against SWPL 1 side Spartans. After the game ended goalless after extra-time, Hamilton was victorious in the penalty shootout.

This will be a fantastic Third Round tie between two of the top SWPL 2 sides ad will be a great one for the neutrals.
