YES... It's CELTS 2-2 BRIDLINGTON
AS "THE SEASIDERS DIG OUT A
The fourth meeting between the clubs this season ended with honours
even after a last gasp strike from the visitors secured a 2-2 draw.
Bridlington started brightly and twice went close in the opening 15
minutes but they had to wait until just before half-time for their
breakthrough. A goalmouth scramble saw the ball fall kindly for Craig
Burdick who made no mistake from the edge of the box.
The Celts came out with all guns blazing in the second half and slowly
began to stamp their authority in the windy conditions. Roy Stammar
and Mark Bett were both causing problems for the visitors and it was
the latter who struck a pinpoint free kick into the net on 66 minutes
to level matters.
With 13 minutes left Andy Shields nipped in at the far post to guide
the ball home from a free kick but the Celts buckled under late
pressure and Paul Palmer secured a point for the east coast side with
a good finish from a corner on 87 minutes.
The result leaves the Celts in 8th place in the Unibond League
table on 45 points. They are 11 points off leaders Hyde United but
have four games in hand.
It's back to cup action on Tuesday for Lee Sinnott's side as they play
host to Glasshoughton Welfare in the West Riding County Cup
quarter-finals (kick-off 7.45pm).
Next Saturday the Celts travel to struggling Rossendale United
before hosting Colwyn Bay on Saturday 21st February at Throstle Nest.
