Motherwell return to SWPL1 action on Sunday after the summer break, with Spartans the visitors to Ravenscraig.
With 11 games played so far in 2019, Donald Jennow’s side sit six in the eight-team table so far and have the chance to overtake Sunday’s opponents with a win.
Tale of the tape
Motherwell have won three, drawn two and lost six so far in the league 2019, scoring 15 and conceding 31 in the process.
Two defeats came just before the break, with title-chasing Hibernian running out comfortable winners before a tight 2-1 defeat to Celtic in the final match.
The women of steel have taken six points from a possible 18 so far at home, having defeated Stirling University and Forfar Farmington.
Spartans sit two points further ahead in the SWPL1 table, and arrested a run of four straight defeats when they ended the first half of the campaign with a 4-0 home win over Stirling University.
Of their five away league matches so far, they’ve won two and lost three.
Head to head
It’s the second league encounter between the two sides this season on Sunday, with Motherwell having lost 3-1 away from home in March.
The two teams have also already met on cup business already in 2019. Spartans were convincing winners on that occasion, racking up five goals without reply at Ravenscraig.
Manager positive going into second half
“There have been changes to the squad over the summer, mainly with a view to bolstering our squad depth,” head coach Donald Jennow said going into the game.
“It’s been a long break, but we are all positive and ready to return to action against an opponent we know we can stand up better against.”
Watch the match
Ravenscraig’s indoor facility is the venue for Sunday’s match, which kicks off at 2.30pm.
