Keith Briggs finally steered his charges back to winning ways away from home with a comprehensive win over struggling Histon putting four past the hapless hosts during a fine display.
Celtic started quickly, and almost immediately Sean McConville was curling a free kick past Callum Kitscha to open the scoring. It could have been two, but for a snap save by Kitscha when Phil Marsh was through, tipping the ball for a corner. Jamie Tunicliffe was inches from scoring from another corner, but was beaten to the ball by Jay Dowie, who headed into his own net. The goal rocked the home side, and it allowed Phil Marsh to capitalise on poor defending to make it three with only twenty minutes gone.
In the second half, Histon were looking to salvage some pride from set pieces, and a Mills long throw gave them a sniff of a chance at the start of the second half as Peter Grant bundled the ball over the line. Celtic were playing the stronger football though, and McConville twice forced Kitscha into stops, before Adam Pepper restored the three goal cushion with a few minutes left on the clock, blasting the ball from just inside the box and leaving the game to play out comfortably for the visitors.
On the day, Celtic were easily the better side, and never looked like losing.
