Preview: Hibernian v Glasgow City

It’s the next instalment of one of Scottish Women’s football’s most famous fixture as we make the trip to Edinburgh to face Hibernian.

Match Information:

It is our first visit to the newly renovated Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh to face Hibernian.

If you are unable to make it to Meadowbank on Wednesday, you can keep up to date with all the action on our social channels. Kick off is at 7.00pm.

The Opposition:

Hibernian are aiming to close the gap on the top three this season after finishing 17 points behind third placed Celtic in Dean Gibson’s third season in charge of the Leith club.

New signing Crystal Thomas is their joint top goalscorer after a hat-trick against Hamilton Academical while former Glasgow City player Krystyna Freda joined Hibs in the summer.

Previous Meetings:

Glasgow City won two of the three meetings between the two sides last season. The first match saw City secure a comfortable 3-0 victory at the Tony Macaroni Arena in Livingston. That was to be the odd game out as the remaining two matches were much closer affairs. A late Lauren Davidson penalty gave City all three points at Petershill Park before the sides played out a goalless draw at Penicuik Park in the final game of the season

Form Guide:

It has been a mixed start to the season for Hibernian with two wins and two defeats from their opening four games. The opening day saw Hibs suffer a 9-0 defeat to Celtic before bouncing back in their first home game of the season against Hamilton Academical. A narrow defeat to Motherwell followed but victory over Dundee United moved the Leith side up into the top five.

City have a 100% record in the SWPL but conceded their first goal of the season last time out in a 2-1 victory over Aberdeen with Emily Whelan scoring the winner to add to her double against Dundee United four days earlier. City’s only away game so far this season saw a late Jenna Clark header secure the points against Motherwell.
