Honours were even after this hard fought encounter. The game was scoreless at halftime with Trim Celtic coming close through a Paul Bartley shot and a Dominic Martin header which hit the top of the bar. In the second half Albion took the lead after an excellent break. Celtic had good chances to equalise when Shane Ashe’s excellent shot came back off the post and David Conway failed to convert the rebound. Paul Campbell also came close with a firm header that went narrowly over from Noel Payne’s pinpoint cross. Paul Campbell and Shane Ashe then combined well to force a penalty for a handball in the box that Campbell slotted home. Celtic finished strongly but couldn’t find a winner.
