Treble On The Cards

10 November 2012 06:42
Glasgow City may not have maximum points this season but they have yet to lose a game (three points were deducted for playing an inelligible player). Can Forfar spoil their party It is the pinnacle of the Scottish women’s football calendar and the last game of the season tomorrow as Glasgow City take on Forfar Farmington in the final of the Henson Scottish Cup at Airdrie United’s Excelsior Stadium. The 2pm kick off will see the start of a game which will either end with current Cup holders City, finishing the campaign with a remarkable domestic treble, or first time finalists, Forfar, picking up their first ever major silverware after a remarkable season which has seen them finish runners-up to City in the Premier League. With City captain Rachel Corsie out injured, stand in skipper Leanne Ross will lead her team out for what she has no doubts will be a very tough game for her side. She said: "We are really looking forward to the match. There is no extra pressure being favourites as we are more than used to that tag now. It is fantastic that the final is being contested by the country’s two top sides and we know how difficult a match this will be. Forfar are so well organised and defend very well, so they will as always be very tough to break down. This is a massive game for both teams and certainly we will be going all out for a win to finish the season in style." Forfar go into the game will a full bill of health, while City have a number of injury concerns with a series of first team players ruled out, not for the first time this season in a big game. However, Eddie Wolecki Black’s side have yet to lose a competitive domestic game this campaign and it will take a massive performance from Forfar to stop their run for the treble. On the other hand, if there was one side capable of an upset, you would put your money on the Angus outfit every time.
