Following a brief break from the domestic calendar, Motherwell are back in action with title-chasers Celtic descending upon East Kilbride, in the first of a crucial double header for the women of steel.
Paul Brownlie’s side will face a midweek test from the Glasgow giants under the K-Park lights before facing local rivals Hamilton in the second Lanarkshire derby of the 2023/24 SWPL campaign on Sunday.
As the final pre-split fixtures near, Motherwell will be keen to record a positive finale to the regular season, with their bottom-six post-split position already confirmed.
The Tale of the Tape
The women of steel concluded 2023 with a vital three points over Dundee United in the City of Discovery, with defender Jo Addie netting the solitary goal in a defensively resolute performance at Foundation Park, but the squad have yet to find a domestic victory since.
The women of steel will be keen to rectify their recent run of form and capitalise upon their positive displays that have ultimately been left unrewarded, with Hearts and Edinburgh rivals Hibs edging through two closely-fought encounters.
January acquisitions Laura Berry and Sophia Martin will both have to wait for their Motherwell debut after signing on loan from Rangers and Glasgow City until the end of the season. The pair are currently both involved in international action with Scotland, with Berry netting a decisive second-half goal to ensure an impressive 3-2 victory over Sweden this morning in the first match of the MIMA cup in Murcia, Spain.
The visitors make the short trip to East Kilbride after securing their place in the Quarter-Final’s of the Scottish Cup, with a resounding 6-0 victory over Hamilton. Despite this, an Old Firm defeat to fierce rivals Rangers in the Sky Sports Cup Semi-Final and one win from their last three SWPL encounters summarises a difficult month for the Glasgow side.
Celtic talisman Amy Gallacher remains one-goal behind top-goalscorer Jorian Baucom in the SWPL, netting 18-times for Elena Sadiku’s side across the 2023/24 campaign.
