The countdown is on to Thursday's clash between Scotland and Wales in the UEFA Women's Championships qualifier and Scotland midfielder Megan Sneddon expects a difficult game from their Group Four counterparts.
Wales go into Thursday's game on the back of a 4-1 home defeat to France while Scotland will be looking to build on the recent 6-1 victory in Israel as the sides meet at Tynecastle this Thursday. Despite their defeat, Megan knows that Wales will be a tough side to break down and will make it hard for the Scots.
"I'm really looking forward to Thursday's game but I know it will be tricky for us," said Megan. "I watched some of their game against France on Saturday and thought they got off to a great start and it took France until just before half time to break the deadlock. Wales are a very physical side and certainly made a game of it.
"We played them in Wales earlier on in the year and although we won 4-2 they were a difficult team to break down and made it difficult for us. We had to work really hard to get the win in the end and I expect Thursday's game to be just as tough for us."
Megan played in the recent win over Israel and was keen to praise her team mates for their efforts. Two goals from Kim Little and strikes from Jane Ross, Jennifer Beattie, Hayley Lauder and an own goal were enough to give Scotland a winning start to their Euro 2013 qualifying campaign and Megan is keen to build on that performance going into this game.
"The result in Israel was absolutely fantastic," she said. "The whole team did brilliantly coping with the conditions over there. We had studied how Israel play and that paid off and I'm delighted with the result that we got in the end."
"It was great to get off to such a good start in the qualifying campaign and everyone is keen to build on that going into Thursday night's game at Tynecastle."
