The Opposition:

The Dons have had a slow start to the 2022-23 season and will hope to kickstart it with a result in the SWPL Cup.

Emma Hunter and Gavin Beith’s side have struggled for goals so far this season with only three players finding the net so far. Bailley Collins has scored twice while City fans will remember Francesca Ogilvie scoring at Petershill Park in September.

Aberdeen have never won the SWPL Cup but have reached the Semi Finals on a number of occasions. Their most recent Final Four appearance was in 2016 when they were beaten by Glasgow City. Last season they reached the Quarter Finals.

Previous Meetings:

The sides met only a month ago in the Scottish Women’s Premier League. City took an early lead thanks to an own goal but Francesca Ogilvie equalised for the Dons. Emily Whelan’s second half strike was enough for City to claim all three points.

Form Guide:

Aberdeen are still looking for their first win of the season however have played all of the top three in their opening six SWPL matches this season. Away from home, the Dons have lost two of their three games by a two goal margin away at Hamilton Academical and Spartans.
