Preview: Motherwell v Glasgow City

It’s our first away game of the season this Sunday as we make the trip to East Kilbride to face Motherwell at their new home, K Park, in the Scottish Women’s Premier League.

Match Information:

It’s our first trip to East Kilbride since 2020 after Motherwell moved from their previous home of Alliance Park in Strathclyde Country Park to K Park.

If you are unable to make it to K Park on Sunday, you can keep up to date with all the action on our social channels. Kick off is at 4pm.

The Opposition:

Motherwell are in their fourth season in the top flight of Scottish Women’s football following promotion back in 2018 and are looking to continue to move up the table.

Head Coach Paul Brownlie took over last season and is assisted by former Glasgow City midfielder Leanne Crichton.

The Women of Steel have brought in four new faces this season with Lucy Ronald, Brogan Anderson, Emily Mutch and Emma Lawton all signing for the 2022-23 season.

Brownlie’s side finished seventh last year but were only two points off a top half finish and after a strong finish to last season, are aiming to continue that form into the start of this season.

Previous Meetings:

City won all three SWPL fixtures between the two sides last season. An opening day victory at Petershill Park saw Priscila Chinchilla get on the scoresheet within the first minute before goals from Claire Walsh, a double from Ode Fulutudilu and strikes from Taylor Fisher and Vital Kats secured the points.

Eileen Gleeson’s first SWPL match in charge was the trip to Alliance Park where, after a goalless opening 45, City scored five to give Gleeson her first league victory. A late Katie Rice free kick in that match would be the only goal Motherwell scored against City last season. The third meeting between the sides would see a repeat of the 6-0 scoreline from earlier in the season.

Motherwell have never beaten Glasgow City in nine attempts.

Form Guide:

Motherwell opened the season with a hard fought one all draw against SWPL2 champions Dundee United. A mistake at the back gave the home side an early lead but a Kaela McDonald-Nguah penalty 14 minutes from time rescued a point for Paul Brownlie’s side

City scored seven on the opening day as Clare Shine began the season with a hat-trick. Kinga Kozak scored on her Glasgow City debut while Abbi Grant and Lauren Davidson also got off the mark this season as City defeated Spartans.
