    • Dunfermline Athletic
    • Celtic
    • 90+2' Full time! Celtic win comfortably 3-0 away to a poor Dunfermline.
    • 90' Mulgrew tries his luck again from distance, but Chris Smith makes sure lightening doesn't strike twice.
    • 88' Celtic continue to attack as Samaras is brought down inside the Dunfermline half.
    • 87' Just offside there. Celtic almost add another but for the assistant referee's flag.
    • 84' Dunfermline waste a great opportunity inside teh Celtic box only the cross is poor as Celtic pick up the pieces and go on the attack.
    • 83' Stokes with a wonderful effort there from all of 30 yards out! 'Keeper appeared to have it covered, but it almost curled in at the last minute.
    • 80' Handbags there! Boyle and Ki Sung-Yueng have a disagreement and both are rightly booked.
    • 79' Change for Celtic. Emilio Izaguirre replaces Victor Wanyama.
    • 78' Liam Buchanan is on for Andrew Barrowman.
    • 77' So close by Du-Ri! Really should have scroed but managed to drag his shot wide six yards out!
    • 76' Forrest with a great strike, but Smith does well to tip it over for a corner!
    • 75' Cha Du-Ri replaces Adam Matthews.
    • 69' Mulgrew deserves that goal. Not just for his delivery today, but his work-ate has been admirable.
    • 68' Unbelievable goal from Charlie Mulgrew! His set-pieces have been dangerous all afternoon. But, while everyone was expecting him to cross it in, the 25-year-old saw his shot dip high beyond the ‘keeper.
    • 66' Ki Sung-Yueng is now on for Gary Hooper.
    • 65' Dunfermline go close! Martin Hardie fires just wide from 18 yards out. That has got the home crowd on their feet.
    • 63' Andy kirk replaces Paul Willis.
    • 62' Forrest will be wondering where his strikers were. The youngster skipped past two challenges before whipping in a low cross that was waiting to be tapped in.
    • 61' Disappointing corner by Dunfermline. Easily pushed clear by Forster.
    • 58' Slick passing by Celtic almost carves out another golden opportunity to add a third. But the hosts' defence is up to the task this time.
    • 57' Samaras and Brown play a clever one-two, but the Greece international has his cross blocked.
    • 54' Hooper heads wide. Get movement off the ball there, but the forward couldn’t hit the target.
    • 53' Brown in the right place at the right time, AGAIN. He midfielder races onto a loose ball in his own half and starts another Celtic attack.
    • 52' Gary Mason comes off for Joe Cardle.
    • 50' Neil Lennon on the touchline there, wanting more from his players. The Celtic boss is clearly believes goal difference may well be a factor at the end of the season.
    • 49' As the rain pours down, both sides are finding it hard to produce a spell of possession.
    • 45' We're off again at East End Park.
    • 45' Half-time. Celtic two up and seemingly cruising.
    • 43' Scott Brown again winning the ball back for Celtic. The midfielder is bossing the middle of the park with ease.
    • 40' Alarm bells are now being heard by the Dunfermline side. Celtic look on a mission to add many more goals to their tally.
    • 39' Celtic double the lead! Wanyama arrives at the far post to connect with a Mulgrew free-kick emphatically. No chance there for Chris Smith.
    • 36' Stokes races onto a loose ball and drags his shot wide. Poor effort there.
    • 34' The game is a bit flat at East End Park. Chances are at a premimum.
    • 30' Thomas Rogne has been immense at the back for The Hoops. He is giving Fraser Forster a comfortable game.
    • 25' The Celtic defence today have been alert and willing to fight every cause. Dunfermline starting to lose belief.
    • 24' Dunfermline have started to push up, which seems dangerous as there's plenty of space for Celtic to run into. Hooper almost through on goal there.
    • 21' Resultant corner by Hooper is poor as Dunfermline look to clear.
    • 20' Great long range strike from Victor Wanyama. Chris Smith did well there to tip it over the bar.
    • 14' Celtic look as if they are fast running out of ideas here. The home supporters are getting louder as they continue to encourage their team's effort.
    • 18' What a goal! 1-0 to Celtic. Hooper's corner is played short and eventually picked up by Stokes, who curls in a delicious effort on the edge of the box beyond Chris Smith into the top left-hand corner.
    • 12' Despite all their possession, Celtic are starting to find Dunfermline a tough nut to crack. So far, so good for the home side.
    • 11' Penalty claim by the visitors, but referee Iain Brines believes Hooper went down too easily on the edge of Dunfermline's penalty area.
    • 6' Samaras smashes a dangerous ball across the face of Dunfermline's goal. But where were his teammates? Opportunity missed there.
    • 5' Dunfermline almost get that all wrong! Corner by Celtic is somehow scrambled away by the hosts. That looked a little nervy from The Pars.
    • 3' The surface here at East End Park looks tidy. And Celtic are looking to pass their way through the Dunfermline defence.
    • 2' Energetic start here by the hosts. Celtic defenders looking shaky.
    • 1' Referee Iain Brines gets us off and underway at East End Park.
    • 14:55 Neil Lennon is being far from cautious today away to bottom of the table Dunfermline. Going with Georgios Samaras, Gary Hooper and Anthony Stokes in attack, Lennon appears to not only want the three points today, but plenty of goals from his team.
    • 14:46 DUNFERMLINE: Smith, Dowie, Potter, Keddie, Boyle, Willis, Hardie, Mason, Burns, Graham, Barrowman...Subs: Goodfellow, Kirk, Buchanan, Cardle, Easton, Ryan Thomson, Young. /// CELTIC: Forster, Matthews, Rogne, Mulgrew, Ledley, Forrest, Brown, Wanyama, Samaras, Hooper, StokeS...Subs: Zaluska, Ki, Izaguirre, Kelvin Wilson, Cha, Bangura, McCourt.
    • 14:36 Dunfermline face a tough test this afternoon against Neil Lennon's Celtic side. The hosts have yet to win a home game this season and if we take a look at past encounters between these two teams, Dunfermline's last win at East End Park against The Hoops came way back in 1990.
