Celtic defeated 2-0 by a strong Oldham side
By Taran Dhamrait

Celtic fell to a 2-0 defeat at Bower Fold against a strong Oldham side with a goal in both halves sealing victory for The Latics.

Oldham took the lead on 29 minutes through Trialist ‘E’ after he was able to latch onto a ball over the top of the defence. He impressively played the ball over Grant Shenton and into the empty net.

Just before the hour mark, Celtic’s Trialist No.2 made a superb piece of last-ditch defending to nick the ball off Keillor-Dunn who was through on goal.

Celtic had a great chance of their own moments later, a corner was headed back across goal to Luke Barlow however he couldn’t quite connect with the ball and his strike fell wide of the far post.

Oldham scored a second on 63 minutes through Trialist ‘H’.

Callum Whelan played a lovely through ball into the path of ‘H’ and he fired low past Shenton to score Oldham’s second.

Celtic’s Trialist No.18 took aim from a free-kick 25 yards out and forced a stunning save from Latics keeper to prevent a goal.

Shenton was called into action three minutes from time, making a superb finger tip save to deny Trialist H.

Oldham left Bower Fold victorious in what was a good test for some of Celtic’s youngsters, with academy players Matthew Jones and Noah Inneh both featuring.

Celtic return to action this Saturday away at Macclesfield FC (15:00).
