A Big Night At Celtic Park Where Three Points Are A Must.

Image for A Big Night At Celtic Park Where Three Points Are A Must.

It’s a big night at Celtic Park tonight and I will not be there.

I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks and over the weekend I tested positive for the dreaded bug.

After two years nearly of dodging the early variants, I got caught by Omicron as I suspected that I might. I feel reasonably okay, but my night will be spent watching the match at home.

It will be a cracking night under the floodlights.

Will our new signings play? I’m writing this at half past five; by the time many of you read it the answer to that question will be known. I think we’d all love to see Maeda in particular. That’s the boss’s call.

What is not up for debate is this; three points are a must.

We can cut the gap on Ibrox and put them under real pressure for once.

Their own side rolls up to Pittodrie tomorrow.

Anything the home side takes there is a massive result for us.

But we can’t expect it far less rely on it. This league will be won based on what we do ourselves.

So we have to be sharp tonight and focussed. I am sure the players have been looking forward to this game as much as we have, and they will be confident taking the field. The support from the stands will be typically excellent. The house will be rocking and that always inspires them to be their best.

We will need to be. Hibs will be well up for it.

I expect us to win the points. It would be great, though, to do it in some style. It would be great to see the new players integrate perfectly. It would be great if some of the injured players were back in contention.

But I’ll settle for it scrappy. I’ll settle for the victory.

Obviously I’m gutted I can’t be there, but I’m looking forward to it just the same.

Come on you Bhoys in Green! See you all on the other side.

    Come on the Hoops. I, too, will be watching at home. Not coz I have Omicron though. That’s a bummer. Here’s to 3 points and a speedy recovery.

    Pity sky sports didn’t have this game, would be nice to see the steam coming out of boyds ears trying to work out a way to criticise that first half performance… hope you’re keeping well james

    i only listened to the game on audio. ange said in his post game interview that there some wasteful shots at goal. ange will address this for sure. a very necessary win but the hibs player was unlucky to touch the ball with his hand or arm.
