Confirmed: Celtic line-up to play Partick Thistle

Here is the Celtic team to play Partick in the SPL clash this evening.

Celtic: Gordon; Matthews, Denayer, van Dijk, Izaguirre; Brown, Bitton; Mackay-Steven, Johansen, Armstrong; Guidetti

Subs: Zaluska, Ambrose, Fisher, Scepovic, Stokes, McGregor, Henderson

Ronny Deila will be hoping that his team can win the first of their games in hand over Aberdeen to pull into a clear lead at the top of the Scottish Premier League.

The Bhoys have been in good form and will be confident going into the match, despite the fact they’re playing away from home.

Celtic haven’t lost a game since they were beaten by Dundee United just before Christmas and Deila will want his side to use that momentum to pull clear at the top of the division over the next couple of months.

Partick are down in ninth place, which makes the Bhoys favourites for the game although they will have to perform well to get the win.

Celtic don’t have the best attacking record in the SPL but they have excelled in defence, conceding only 12 goals this season, which is a remarkable record.

Any team which can keep clean sheets makes the job of the attack a bit easier, because it then only takes one half chance to be converted for the team to register three points.
