The two teams met at Clyde’s Broadwood Stadium earlier this month in the SWPL Cup semi-finals, with holders Hibs coming out on top with a 3-0 victory.

This will be the third time the city rivals have faced one another already this season, a goalless draw kicking off the opening day of the 2019 campaign in February.

Grant Scott’s Hibs side will be looking for their second league win in four days following their 3-0 victory over Stirling University at Peffermill on Wednesday night. Goals from Cailin Michie, Colette Cavanagh and Kirsten Reilly ensured Hibs closed the gap on leaders Glasgow City to two points. Scott Booth’s outfit have played a game fewer, however.
