Match Preview: Hibernian Women vs Hamilton Academical

THE LOWDOWN

This Sunday we host Hamilton Academical at the Tony Macaroni Arena in Park’s Motor Group SWPL 1 action.

Dean Gibson's side will be looking to build on last weekend's win over Partick Thistle and continue their winning ways.

THE OPPOSITION

Hamilton are currently bottom of the park’s Motor Group SWPL 1 table on 9 points.

In their last match, they fell to a 6-0 defeat at the hands of Celtic. Their most recent victory in the league came on April 16th 2022 when they defeated Motherwell 1-0 in the Lanarkshire derby at Fir Park.

Hibs and Hamilton have only met once so far this season, which was back on November 3rd 2021, in a match that saw Gibson’s side pick up a 1-0 victory thanks to a goal from Amy Gallacher.

FROM THE CHANGING ROOM

Colette Cavanagh has shared her thoughts on being named in the inaugural PFA Scotland Women’s Team of the Year and has also looked ahead to Sunday’s clash with Hamilton.

“I was really proud to be included in the Team of the Year alongside fantastic players. I’m delighted to be the only semi-professional player in the squad and I hope it inspires other semi-professionals to work hard and get the recognition they deserve. As cliché as it sounds - I couldn’t have done it without my team!

“We were very happy as we felt we were due a win against them (Partick Thistle). We underperformed in the last game but in the recent game we fought hard and executed our game plan. We felt confident going into the game and must continue this against Hamilton.

“We’re expecting Hamilton to be very organised and hard to break down. We have a game plan, and we will focus on this and hopefully, the rewards will come.

“We are all looking forward to being back at the Tony Macaroni Arena as the pitch suits our needs and style of play. It is also a great venue and we hope that we have as many fans there as possible!”

KEEPING UP WITH THE ACTION
