The Opposition:

Hibernian are very well known to all Glasgow City supporters with a rivalry stretching back years. Many cup finals and league deciders have been played between the two and this weekend will see the next chapter be written.

Having moved grounds this season, Hibs started the season slowly but have begun finding form in recent weeks including reaching next weekend’s Sky Sports Cup final.

Dean Gibson’s side has a blend of youth and experience with players that have been at the club for years including captain Joelle Murray and fellow centre back Siobhan Hunter while youngsters Eilidh Adams and Rosie Livingstone have been on the scoresheet this season.

Previous Meetings:

Glasgow City and Hibernian have met twice already this season with a win apiece. City secured three points in the SWPL fixture at Meadowbank Stadium with four first half goals. Lauren Davidson, Emily Whelan and Kinga Kozak all got on the scoresheet that night.

The Leith side were victorious in the Sky Sports Cup Semi Final meeting between the sides last month with a Krystyna Freda double for Hibs being the difference. Mairead Fulton scored for City.

Form Guide:

After a poor start to the season by their standards, Hibs have improved and are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions and currently sit just inside the top half of the table.

Last time out, Hibernian scored late on to draw one all with Edinburgh rivals Hearts.

Glasgow City sit top of the SWPL with ten wins and a draw from the opening round of fixtures.

City’s last match saw us beat Partick Thistle 4-1.
