Celtic Starting XI
A return for Scotty
Scott Sinclair joined PNE from Celtic having made himseld into a modern legend at Paradise.
The winger helped the Hoops to their treble treble and won Scottish player of the year, though unfortunately there will only be 2,000 fans to see his return.
The players are out
The Celtic players have made their way to the pitch, closely followed by PNE.
We’re underway at Paradise!
Barkhuizen comes forward down the right, his cross falls kindly to Potts who strikes on the volley inside the area and forces a very good save.
Turnbull fires wide
Turnbull steps forward from midfield as the space is offered up to him and shoots on his left foot just past the left post.
Huge chance and penalty shout
Sinclair gets onto a Ched Evans flick forward and bursts in behind, he rides a challenge and nearly rounds the keeper but sees his shot saved.
Had he gone down he’d likely have got a penalty but no advantage it seems for the former Celtic man...
