Alabama preview

The Southeastern Conference season rolls on Thursday night at the Alabama Soccer Complex in Tuscaloosa as the Kentucky Wildcats travel south to play the Alabama Crimson Tide in an 8 p.m. ET match.

The match will be shown live on the SEC Network+, ESPN+ and the ESPN app.

The banged-up and injury-laden Wildcats will be looking to snap a season-high five-match losing streak on Thursday night with at least four starters confirmed out for the season with year-ending injuries. Kentucky played the No. 11 Tennessee Lady Vols on Friday night to a 3-1 scoreline with Hollie Olding scoring the Wildcats’ first goal in SEC play this season in the 86th minute of the match.

Kentucky leads the all-time series with Alabama 13-5-2. The Wildcats are unbeaten in six of its last seven against the Crimson Tide, and four in a row. The last UK loss in the series came in 2012 in an overtime loss to Alabama in Lexington. The last Kentucky loss in Tuscaloosa came in 2009, a 2-0 loss to the Tide. UK is 5-3-1 all-time on the road against Alabama.

The two teams did not play in 2017. This will be Ian Carry‘s first match-up with Alabama’s Wes Hart.
