Match Report


Not so much daylight robbery, more like night time theft as Celtic took three points from a game which looked to belong to the lads in tangerine. In what was one of the best performances of the season, Kjell Olofsson put us in front when he neatly chipped the ball past Gould after Lars Zetterlund had played his fellow country man through.

Although we dominated the entire second half Celtic some how found the fortitude to salvage a win when all seemed lost. First Lambert lashed in a shot which Sieb could only parry and Donnelly netted the equaliser. Burley with a shot off the heel of Steven Pressley brought the visitors undue desserts three minutes from time. Only great saves by Gould in between those strikes prevented us claiming the victory we merited.
