It was first blood to Anna Signeul's side at the weekend when they crushed the Faroe Islands 7-2 in Torshavn while the Swedes beat Poland 2-0 in Malmo. With the Euro 2013 semi-finalists not in action tonight the Scots could move three points clear at the top of Group 4. "We have five more games before we play Sweden here in June," said Kim Little, the Arsenal midfielder. "And it's definitely our aim to get maximum points."
Although the top scorer in the current squad didn't add to her tally of 29 in Torshavn her link play was again superb. "It's always nice to get a goal but we had six different scorers on Sunday and that can only be a positive," the 23-year-old pointed out.
With Hearts unable to commit Tynecastle to this campaign because of their financial problems, Little and her team-mates got a feel for their new surroundings yesterday and she said: "It was great playing at Tynecastle, but a change is good and the pitch is in fine condition."
Bosnia are ranked lower than the Faroes in the Fifa rankings but that is being taken with a pinch of salt by the Scottish squad. Tonight's visitors are much more experienced than the islanders and won three of their Euro 2013 qualifying matches, while only losing 1-0 at home to Italy. "Tactically they have their weaknesses," said Signeul. "But as individuals their players are very astute."
Having returned from the Faroes without any injuries, the Scots are expected to play much the same team tonight. That means continuing with the new central defensive partnership of Rachel Corsie and Jenny Beattie, even although Hibs' Frankie Brown and Glasgow City's Eilish McSorley are pushing hard for places. "It's tough on the other two, but Rachel and Jenny need game time together," Signeul explained. "Jenny is being played in central defence by Montpellier, which can only help us."
n Tonight's game kicks off at 7.35pm with tickets priced £5/£2 available at Fir Park
