Hibs Ladies face another top-of the table-clash tomorrow when they head west to visit current SWPL 1 league leaders Celtic.

The Hibees trail their opponents by a single point but have the incentive of leapfrogging the Glasgow club should they emerge with all three points from the K-Park showdown.

Celtic have also played a game more than both the Capital side and champions Glasgow City, who drew 2-2 at Ainslie Park last Sunday.

And now defender Emma Brownlie is desperate to get back to winning ways.

“After last weekend’s result we are looking forward to tomorrow’s game,” Brownlie said.

“We have a good record against Celtic and it’s one we want to continue. The return of key players really strengthened our squad last week and we will look to build on that this weekend with them getting more minutes.

“We have depth throughout the squad now so competition for places is tough but it ensures everyone is playing at the top of their game week in, week out.

“It’ll be an exciting run of games from now until the summer break and that’s something we thrive on.”

Spartans Women, who picked up their first win of the campaign at newly-promoted Forfar Farmington last weekend, host Stirling University at Ainslie Park.

In SWPL 2, Hearts welcome Aberdeen to King’s Park, Dalkeith, in a mid-table clash and Edinburgh University Hutchison Vale play Kilmarnock at Peffermill.
