Glasgow City prepare to face Forfar in League Cup Semi-Final

Glasgow City take on Forfar Farmington this Thursday in the Semi-Final of the Premier League Cup.

Knocked out at this stage of the competition last year, Assistant City Coach Donald Jennow knows his side need to keep their focus to progress against a talented and committed Forfar side.

He said, “On Thursday we will take on Forfar for the second time this season. As is so often the case at City the big games keep coming. Having just faced Hibs and Celtic back to back we have this midweek game against a stubborn Forfar side. It was at this stage last year I tasted defeat for the first time with City and in seasons past the League Cup has proved a bit of a stumbling block for us. We hope to put that right this year. All involved at the club are very keen to progress in the competition but are fully aware of the challenge we will face. Forfar will be a determined side and I'm sure all involved at Forfar will relish the opportunity to compete in the clubs first semi-final. For us, we will rely on our experience to hopefully guide us through to the final. Make no mistake we do not take any opposition or any competition for granted. We must earn every victory, every point and every trophy we ever want to hold and that is what we aim to do on Thursday.“
