Match Report

Celtic secured all three points after a hard fought victory against a resilient Enfield side to leave them joint top of the league with three wins out of four. The game was only four minutes old when Liam Reilly won the ball from the right full back and raced through to fire an unstoppable shot into the top corner from an acute angle to open the scoring. Any thoughts that this would be an easy assignment were soon dispelled as Enfield came into the game forcing the concession of a few free kicks and corners which were comfortably dealt with by the hoops' keeper Kevin Dalton. At the other end some great footwork by Cian Russell gave him room for a shot and he cracked a great right foot volley that was well held by the home 'keeper. Further chances were to fall to Evan deCourcey Tobin and Oran Kirby but there was to be no more scoring in the first half.
The second half began as the first one ended with Celtic in the ascendency but unable to add to the scoreline despite numerous chances. It meant a nervy finish was in prospect until deCourcey Tobin netted his third of the season with a late goal following some great perseverance after a goalmouth scramble. Best on the day for Celtic were Liam Reilly, Fionn McEvoy and Conor McGinley.
