Joey Dawson and Owen Moffat are missing from the Celtic B team in action against East Stirling tonight prompting speculation that they have been promoted to the first team squad.

Injuries to Albian Ajeti and Kyogo Furuhashi has left Ange Postecoglou without any recognised strikers going into a hectic run of fixtures.

Winger Moffat is the top goalscorer in the B team with 11 goals to his name this season including a double last week in the 3-0 win over Edinburgh University.

Dawson was scored five goals in the Lowland League since signing from Scunthorpe in the summer with his most recent goal coming in the 3-2 win over Caledonia Braves in a 3-2 win on November 27.

There may be other reasons for Moffat and Dawson missing from tonight’s match but with Giorgos Giakoumakis and Jota also missing against Motherwell on Sunday it is understandable if Postecoglou wants to have a close look at two possible striking options in training tomorrow.
