Celtic are through to the quarter finals of the Betfred Cup after a 2-1 win after extra-time against Dunfermline, and will now play Partick Thistle next at Celtic Park.

It was a frustrating afternoon for Neil Lennon’s men as they came up against a Dunfermline side who played with ten men behind the ball, and to their credit defended everything Celtic threw at them very well. The first half was an uneventful one for the Hoops as they struggled to break down Dunfermline, with Ryan Scully only being tested with a couple of long range efforts.

The breakthrough came for Celtic early in the second half as Mikey Johnston’s lob from just outside the box found its way into the top corner of Scully’s goal.

From there the Bhoys kept most of the possession and hunted for the second goal, as Dunfermline began to come out of their defensive shape on the look out for an equaliser. The away side eventually got this through a great counter attack when the ball was cut back too Tom Beadling who neatly finished past Gordon.
