Groundwork pays dividends for Celtic

CLEATOR Moor Celtic’s ground staff worked wonders with the Cleator Moor pitch as the game was given the nod after an 8.30am pitch inspection on Saturday morning.

Wayne Kelly was up at eight rolling the pitch as it started to thaw and that meant history was made as Cleator Moor Celtic were the only team to host a game in the Wearside League.

Peterlee’s Paul Taylor had the first chance but Grant Carson saved his effort. Celtic remained dominant but the first half finished all square.

Substitute Anthony Rodgerson had the first chance of the second half but Carson saved.

Celtic manager Matt Henney made a double change as Tom Mahone and Josh Charlton were replaced by Dion Barnes and Ryan Hall.

The deadlock was broken on 75 minutes as it looked as though the tie could be heading to extra time.

Ryan Hall was brought down by Adam Heath and the referee awarded a penalty which Jordon Little converted to give Celtic the lead. Bradley Rooney scored a second to hand Celtic a passage into the quarter finals of the League Cup.
