Queen’s Park last faced Stirling University on Wednesday, 23rd June 2021 in the SWPL 2. Mhairi Fyfe made it 1–0 for the Spiders in the 22nd minute, but Anna Dickov’s second-half equaliser meant that the two sides had to settle for a point apiece.

This season, Stirling University finished fifth in their SWPL Cup group after losing to Kilmarnock (3–0), Hibernian (10–0), and Dundee United (7–1). Meanwhile, in the SWPL 2, they have drawn with St Johnstone (0–0) and Boroughmuir Thistle (0–0, though Boroughmuir were later awarded a 3–0 win by SWF) and lost to Dundee United (5–1, Jodie Malcolm the goalscorer) and Kilmarnock (7–0).

Head Coach Barry Rodgers said “It’s a game we’re looking forward to again. The players have worked well during the week, they keep and aiming for the next level, which is great. We’re just looking to get into the game, and try and to the best we possibly can”. 

“Stirling have had a couple of improved results recently, they got a couple of fresh faces in as well, and they’ll be coming into the game looking to impose themselves and make it challenging for us. We need to rise to that, to dig deep and be together – which we are. As a group, we’re looking forward to the game”.
