Eva: Job done!

22 June 2023

Hearts started fast and were ahead at the interval, thanks to Georgia Timms, but were punished for not taking their chances as Thistle hit back in the second half to force extra time.

To their credit, the Jambos didn't panic and continued to dominate the tie in extra time and this time they got their reward with three really good finishes from Katie Rood, Cailin Michie and Ciara Grant, to book their place in Monday evening's draw. 

“During the game, I was quite calm," admitted Olid. "I thought we were dominating, and I was thinking, we have to win surely?!

“It would’ve been better in 90 minutes, but we got the job done!

“Our finishing is something we are working on. We have to be more clinical. The opportunities are there for us, but the bigger problem is when you don’t have the opportunities in the first place. 

“I think today will help us grow in confidence with our finishing because, in the end, we have scored four goals.

On the draw, Olid concluded:

“I have a feeling we might get one of the top three!

“But please can we play at home! We are playing a lot of games away and we like to play at home with a big pitch where we can play our game!
