Ghirls train ahead of Jags challenge, Elena Sadiku’s media conference

Elena Sadiku held her media conference yesterday ahead of the first of three matches in a week which Celtic FC Women need to win to be SWPL1 Champions.

The three opponents standing in the way for a historic first ever title for Celtic FC Women are Partick Thistle on Sunday at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie, then a midweek trip to Edinburgh to take on Hearts before a home match at Celtic Park a week on Sunday where Hibs will provide the opposition.

Live on BBC Alba 

Celtic FC Women are currently top, level on points with theRangers but with a significant goal difference advantage of plus 13.  And Elena Sadiku’s side will need to increase that further in the early kick-off against Partick Thistle on Sunday lunchtime. Kick-off is 12.10pm and the game is live on BBC Alba if you can’t make it along to Airdrie.

And if Celtic can get among the goals to build the goal difference as much as possible that will increase the pressure of Jo Potter’s side who play current SWPL Champions Glasgow City later in the day at the tricky Petershill Park. That one is also live on BBC Alba with a 4.10pm kick-off.

The toughest match is likely to be the game on Wednesday night away to Hearts and that is also being shown live on the BBC.

Ghirls Title Glory at Paradise?

Then it’s back to Celtic Park for the second time in recent weeks for Celtic FC Women and if all goes well then there will be a massive title party. Tickets for that game are now on sale via the official Celtic website:

Celtic FC Women will return to Paradise for their final game of the season, as they welcome Hibernian to Celtic Park on Sunday, May 19 (KO 2:10pm).

With just three SWPL matches left, it is set to be a thrilling climax to the 2023/24 campaign and you can be there with tickets available to buy online now.

Here’s the SWPL1 league table as it currently stands and also Elena’s media conference, we were not there due to an ongoing technical problem at Celtic’s end sending out emails.
