Celtic v Spartans: Five reasons to buy your tickets now!


By Colette Carr

The Celts are back at home tomorrow and you can be there to roar them onto another victory.

With Celtic sitting in third just two points off the top, here are five reasons to get along to the Penny Cars Stadium.

Looking forwards and upwards

Fran Alonso’s side can extend their unbeaten league run to twenty this weekend if they avoid defeat to Spartans and move up the table in the race for top spot.

The Ainslie Park side travel to North Lanarkshire off the back of a stalemate at home to Motherwell looking to get back to winning ways, setting up another interesting battle between the two longstanding top flight sides. 

More capital gains

Celtic won all three meetings with the capital outfit last season, at three different venues with the Hoops now looking to add the Penny Cars Stadium to that list. After a narrow 1-0 victory over Spartans at K-Park last year, they then notched up a convincing 5-1 win in Edinburgh before a resounding 4-0 result at Lennoxtown. With that record in mind, Alonso is hoping to continue his form against the Edinburgh side.

Free-scoring Celts

The Celts have recorded 13 different scorers so far this season, notably with six different scorers hitting the target next last weekend at Hamilton Accies. Summer signing Charlie Wellings is leading the line with 11 goals in ten appearances, but the Hoops are providing the goals from all over the pitch, with centre-backs Cheyenne Shorts and Caitlin Hayes getting on the scoresheet in their last outing. So with threats all over the park, you can anticipate anyone being the attacking outlet in Alonso’s side who continue enjoy a new brand of attacking football.

Shaping up

In his pre-match press conference Alonso admitted his weekly selection headache is never easy, but with constant rotation brings minutes for everyone in the new system. With the new formation coming into play at the start of the season, Celtic have began to master the new shape and discovered a variety of options in each position, making way for seamless transitions as and when changes are made. With Celtic’s new identity this season, why not come along and get to grips with the new Celtic Way? 

Last chance before the international break 

The weekend provides your last chance to see the Ghirls in SWPL1 action before the international break with Tegan Bowie and Rachael Johnstone heading out to the Netherlands with Scotland Under-19s and Liv Chance jetting off with New Zealand’s Football Ferns after full-time falls.

With the Celts next in action away to Rangers in the SWPL Cup in two weeks time, and both their Glasgow rivals facing off in the late kick-off this season, you could see the Celts climb the table going into the international break before the next league weekend. 

Tickets for the 1pm kick-off can be bought here.
