Celtic’s u-19 side finally get back into action today with the home match against Inverness Caley Thistle definitely ON, kick-off 2pm

John Kennedy’s side will have use of the undersoil heating pitch at Lennoxtown to play just their second match since the turn of the year.

A fortnight ago Kennedy’s side won 2-1 away to St Mirren as they started to clear the backlog of fixtures that sees them three games behind Hearts with ten game left to be played.

Continuity of selection is never likely with various demands placed on players but momentum in terms of results is required if the hoops are to retain the title.

Today’s match should kick-off an intensive period of action, weather permitting, for the side with Kennedy looking forward to the challenge.

“It was disappointing that the game against Hibs was postponed,” be admitted. “But the boys were training Saturday and Sunday and desperate to get playing.

“There’s a lot of fixtures to be played over the next couple of months and the whole squad is going to be used.

“Inverness will be keen to put on a good show and will make it as difficult as possible. We’ll have a similar team to the side we had in mind against Hibs.

“We got three points away to St Mirren a fortnight ago and need to kick on from that performance if we’re to be among the prizes at the end of the season.”

Inverness have taken just two points from twelve games this season with a home win taking Celtic level with Hibs on 32 points with two games in hand on the Edinburgh side.

On Sunday Celtic face Aberdeen at Pittodrie in the quarter-final of the SFA Youth Cup, the two sides have already met twice this season with Celtic winning 4-2 at Barrowfield after a 1-1 draw away from home at the start of the season.
