Motherwell are on the road for the final game of the SWPL1 season, facing Glasgow City on Sunday.
Kick-off at Petershill Park in Glasgow is at 2pm.
Tale of the tape
Glasgow City’s status as SWPL1 champions was confirmed after their last visit to face the women of steel in late October, with a 10-0 win landing them their 13th consecutive league title.
A surprise 4-1 defeat in their last outing at Celtic ended hopes of a 100% league record in 2019, and also ended a 72-game unbeaten run in the league which dated back to June 2016.
Their season won’t end on Sunday, however. The SSE Scottish Women’s Cup final awaits next Sunday against Hibernian at Tynecastle, before a UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final double header against Wolfsburg.
Motherwell started positively on the return from the summer break, securing top flight status and reaching the semi-finals of the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup final, before losing to Hibernian.
However, they’ve now not won in seven, drawing one and losing six.
Motherwell – sixth in SWPL1 – 19 points
Glasgow City – first in SWPL1 – 57 points
Head to head
The two teams have met twice in the 2019 season on SWPL1 business. City won 8-0 at home in the first match, before the aforementioned 10-0 victory away.
WHAT THEY SAID
“We couldn’t have picked a harder opponent to end the season against,” head coach Donald Jennow said.
“Glasgow City still have some big games coming up, so we know they will continue to be relentless in searching for another win.
“For us, it’s a chance to test ourselves again and see what we can produce. We will work on our strengths and areas we think we can exploit.
“But it isn’t all about what happens on Sunday. Our objective was to stay in the division and we’ve achieved that comfortably, as well as reaching the last four of the Scottish Cup.”
