It was a Celtic team including first team players Charlie Mulgrew, Tyler Blackett, Patrick Roberts, Scott Allan, Ryan Christie and Tom Rogic that kicked off on the astro on a very cold night at Lennoxtown. Dunfermline fielded first team squad players too in Shaun Rooney, Lewis Martin, Ryan Wallace, Rhys McCabe, Shaun Byrne and David Hopkirk.

6: Dunfermline attack but Wallace pass to Martin was just behind him
8: Byrne slides in to dispossess Celtic player in box and it goes for a goal kick to Dunfermline
10: Gill down quick to make a great stop from Allan after a powerful run from Roberts.
12: Goal Celtic - ROBERTS, good finish in off the inside of the post. 1-0
14: Corner on right to Celtic and Gill makes a good save from the header
14: Celtic's second goal came from a mistake in defence and Paul McMULLAN finished with style, chipping the keeper for 2-0
18: Great play and pass allows Hopkirk to shoot but keeper Ross Doohan blocks and the danger is cleared.
21: Great tackle by Martin as he stops Roberts, but corner given.

23: Free kick to Pars on far side of penalty area. Taken short by Wallace to McCabe. Pass cleared out

39: Byrne again dispossesses a Celtic player in box and its cleared out
