Match Preview: Spartans v Forfar Farmington (Scottish Women’s Premier League)

Spartans v Forfar Farmington

Scottish Women’s Premier League

Matchday Five

Kick Off: 1.00pm

Ainslie Park, Edinburgh

Forfar Farmington go into this match looking to bounce back from the defeat at Glasgow City last weekend while hosts Spartans haven’t won since the opening day when they defeated Hamilton Academical 2-1.

Farmington visit the excellent Ainslie Park facility still without the services of Keira Johnstone (dislocated knee) and Fiona McNicoll misses out after her facial injury last week, Leonie Simpson will more than likely start in her place. Forfar will also hope to have another couple of players available for the game on Sunday.

Spartans have, as far as I am aware, no injury worries.

Both sides have struggled so far this season, Farmington’s youthful side have won one point in a 2-2 draw with newly promoted Queen’s Park but have been putting in some good performances against experienced sides. Spartans on the other hand, lost out to a late goal last week against Celtic, in the three games before hand they were beaten by Glasgow City 3-1, had a goalless draw with Rangers but won their opening game against Hamilton Academical.
