|Match Pictures | Matches:1953 - 1954 | 1953-54 pictures|
- Bonnar had recovered from the broken bone in his hand and was back in goal; Mike Haughney was away playing for the Scottish league against the Irish league in Dublin - Alec Boden came in; Stein had succumbed to the poisoned toe he had been playing through, McIlroy took his place. McPhail (groin injury) and Walsh were both injured allowing Sean Fallon to make a start at centre forward, and finally Tully was out injured allowing Bobby Collins back into the team.
ReviewAirdrie's only scoring chance came in the first minute of the game when a terrific shot from Cross was headed off the line by Boden who knocked himself out clearing the ball. After that it was constant Celtic pressure against a young and inexperienced Airdrie team.
Aberdeen fell off the pace when they were beaten at home by Falkirk and Hearts had an away win against Hamilton Accies.
