Head Coach Barry Rodgers said: “We’re looking forward to it. It will be a challenging game, we obviously know Dundee United and the quality they’ve got – they’ll pose a threat, so we need to be ready for that and we need to be fully focused. We’ve enjoyed the break, we had a couple of weeks off from competitive action and we had a bit of time off to reset ourselves. We got a lot done on the training pitch as well.”
“We’ve also brought in a couple of new players who’ve added to our squad, so we’re progressing all the time,” he added. The Spiders have signed Central Girls, University of South Alabama and Hamilton Academical midfielder Ellie Kane, and former Celtic, Hamilton Academical and Motherwell midfielder Nicole Cairney. “It should be a match where we can go and test ourselves, and we hope we can take something positive from it.”
