Stroll in the park

Apart from a first second effort, Hyde never really threatened, though Celtic had two goal mouth scrambles to keep the clean sheet, including one, midway through the second half that had two Celtic players block it, and Walker to flap at it, to clear it away.

The goals all came from very sloppy Hyde defending. The first, a cut back from Ayorinde allowed Pickfrod a simple side foot home after the Nigerian had done all the hard work. The second was a great Wood through ball to set Peacock on his way. With McNeil heading one way pulling defenders, the way was open for Peacock to curl a low shot past the keeper. The thid was again a simple side foot, this time McNeil pulling the ball back from the side line for Turley to knock in.

Celtic could have had several more, and indeed, Pickford, Courtney and Woods all struck the crossbar. At one point Felgate (the Hyde keeper) turned to the crowd(of nearly 5) and said "Never worried - it's all about angles."

A very competent Celtic performance that oozed the class that the team has always had.

We played circles around Hyde even after 7 subsitutions left us a bizarre playing 4-2-4 formation.
