93’Full Time
 
90’+01’

Thistle send bodies forward for a free kick but Celtic break. Henderson doesn't quite reach the cut back as Thistle halt the attack six yards out.

81’

It's a Gary Fraser replica free kick from Celtic. Stevenson begins to get it from the terraces but the Celtic bench boots a ball on.

Celtic with a spell of heavy pressure but Thistle are holding on with resolute defending.

53’

The referee plays advantage on four separate fouls as Thistle have the ball in the Celtic half. In the end it comes to nothing and the home side clear.

50’Celtic U20 substitution: Broque Watson replaces Lewis Bell

The gold numbering on the back of the sheet is impossible to read so I'm not certain if it was Bell

 
48’

Elliott's cross is claimed by the goalkeeper then fumbled. As Wilson bundles onto it, the ball seems to be over the line but the referee waves play on.

47’Celtic U20 Booking - Stephen Welsh

45’Half-Time
 
43’

41’

It's delivered deep and Duffy, I think, smashes the post before being cleared off the line. Thistle struggle to get it clear before it is blazed over from 30 yards. 

 
41’Celtic U20 corner
 
35’

Aitchison runs forward evading a couple of challenges. He plays it wide to Caffrey who scoops his cross into the terracing behind the goal.

 
33’

The Celtic player, Ewan Henderson, over the ball takes inspiration from Gary Fraser's effort earlier with a delivery that doesn't trouble anyone.

30’

Thistle get the ball back quickly and Fitzpatrick has an effort blocked. It comes to Fleming who takes his eye off the ball and it is quickly taken off him.

 
28’

Gary Fraser takes a free kick from 40 yards. It does not trouble the goalkeeper, apart from his jog to retrieve it that is. 

 
27’Celtic U20 corner

A clever flick sends Celtic through on goal but Stevenson stands up well to knock it behind for a corner

 
25’

Thistle are playing well during the opening stages of this game but it is currently a midfield attrition with neither goalkeeper overly tested.

 
17’

Elliott gives the ball straight to Roberts. He doesn't break stride and meets the ball reaching the winger, winning possession back.

 
12’

Fleming is coping admirably with Roberts threat and emerges from a tackle with the ball. It's played forward before Elliott's cross is knocked out for a throw

 
10’

Granger has an effort blocked as the corner bounces around the box. It's recycled wide before Stokes heads wide of target.
