Opting to play an attacking line up, Celtic manager John Reed may only one change to the side that beat Nuneaton earlier in the week: Paul Sykes starting in place of the injured Steve Brodie.
Neither side was able to grab a stranglehold on the game in the first half and Celtic were worthy of the 0-0 score line as half time came and went.Sadly, Celtic found themselves one down at the start of the second half. Brett Solkhon curling a fantastic 20 yards effort past the stranded Paul Pettinger.
1-0 became 2-0 moments later as Zema Abbey doubled the homesters lead with a lovely header.
As Celtic battled for a way back into the game, Nathan Koo Boothe suffered a suspected broken leg as he challenged for the same ball with Mark Hume. It appears Koo Boothe may now face a lengthy time on the sidelines and best wishes are extended to him for a speedy recovery.
That man Hume offered Celtic a lifeline when he headed home from a corner to reduce the arrears but sadly they couldn't capitalise and force what would have been a well deserved draw.
Despite the defeat, the Celtic lads can be proud of their efforts and with a run of winnable games in the offing, their league position may look a lot healthier sooner rather than later.
