Just like the Spiders, Boroughmuir Thistle were promoted to the SWPL 2 following a successful 2019 in the now-defunct SWFL 1 South. In the first part of the 2020/21 season, they recorded 3 wins and 7 losses, scoring 11 goals and conceding 27. Boroughmuir started the second half of the season with a 3–1 away loss to Partick Thistle, with Beth MacLeod scoring in the 82nd minute for the visitors. Last Wednesday, they lost 3–1 to Kilmarnock, before drawing, 1–1, with Stirling University at home last Sunday; this time, Fiona Gibson was on the scoresheet for the Edinburgh side. With only three points separating the sides, we can expect a hard-fought encounter between two teams that are both looking to get back to winning ways and finish the season on a high.
