Episode details

Hamilton Academical goalkeeper Lauren Grant joins Anyone’s Game’s Kenny Boag to talk about her nomination for save of the season, and Hamilton’s chances of promotion this weekend as they attempt to see off Dundee United and Partick Thistle to reach the top flight.

Available directly above or on iTunes and Spotify.

Who will be promoted?

Aberdeen have already won SWPL 2, but who will take the second promotion spot? Hamilton are second on 35 points, Partick Thistle third on 34, and Dundee United in fourth on 33.

Hamilton host Kilmarnock while Dundee United are at home to Partick Thistle.

If Hamilton win: They are promoted no matter what happens elsewhere

If Hamilton draw: They will be promoted if United and Thistle draw too. If Thistle win they will go up, but Dundee United not only need to win they need to do it by 15 goals.

If Hamilton lose: A draw between United and Thistle would mean Hamilton go up, because although Thistle would draw level with Accies, the superior goal difference of Gary Doctor’s side would mean they finish second. A win for either United or Thistle would secure promotion.
