Match Preview :- Halesowen Town - Tuesday September 26th, 2017 (19:45:00)

It's not often this early in a season there is a massive game, but Tuesday night's clash with Halesowen Town has taken on this proportion. Halesowen are two points ahead of Celtic in twenty-third on eight points. There will be a match centre and Twitter feed for this game.

Like ourselves, Halesowen have only won two games this season, but they also have managed two draws as well. One of those two games they have won was away, and in their last away match, when they beat Grantham 2-1. Their most recent game was a 1-1 home draw with Warrington. In total, they have scored ten goals, two of which were own goals, meaning the eight goal scorers for Halesowen have all netted one apiece. They are scoring at a rate of 0.9 goals per game (a goal per game away), and conceding 1.8 goals per game (2.2 away). They have conceded in every away game, but only failed to score once away from home when they were beaten 2-0 by Hednesford.

In Halesowen's last match, the 1-1 draw with Warrington, they lined up as:
1. Dan Platt
2. Kyle Morrison
3. Jack Kelly
4. Oliver Finney
5. Dominic Smith
6. Asa Charlton
7. Cameron Steele
8. Alexander Woodhouse
9. Daniel Udoh
10. Luke Shearer
11. Lee Chilton

Celtic's last match was the 4-0 away defeat at Coalville Town. In that match, we lined up as:
1. Jack Walton
2. Danny Morton
3. Ross Killock
4. Tom Brown
5. Luke Ashworth
6. Alex Honeyball
7. Aidan Chippendale
8. Oli Roberts
9. Liam Dickinson
10. Jake Charles
11. Liam Tongue

Danny Morton will be missing through suspension and Joe Garvin through injury. Celtic have not won a midweek match since our home win over Kidderminster in April, that has to change this week, or the gap between ourselves and next bottom will increase to require two wins not one.
