East Fife stun Celtic
Celtic 1, East Fife 1
East Fife manager Pat Quinn promised Celtic an exciting match in this League Cup section and that is exactly what his team produced. That, and a shock opening goal that put Celtic on the rack. Goalkeeper Gorman had an outstanding opening session when he defied scoring efforts from Johnstone, Dalglish and Callaghan.
The cue from the keeper was taken up by his immediate defenders and then the wing half gave the forwards every support. East Fife took the lead in 30 minutes with a glorious goal. A long lob from defence was headed down by Green to Hegarty who coolly placed the ball well past Connaghan.
The second half was full of incident mostly in Gorman's vicinity as Celtic strove desperately for the equaliser. Martis was booked in the 51st minute for a foul on Johnstone. Wilson came on for Davidson in 59 minutes. Then in 71 minutes Dalglish headed a Quinn cross to score Celtic's equaliser,
Celtic:--Connaghan; McGrain and Quinn; Murdoch, McNeill and Connolly; Johnstone, Dalglish, Macari, Callaghan and Davidson. Sub.— Wilson.
East Fife: — Gorman; Duncan and McQuade; McIvor, Martis and Hamilton; Hegarty, Borthwick, Green, Hughes, and McPhee. Sub. — Honeyman.
