The Celts will be looking to build on Saturday, in which a first point of the season was picked up in a goalless draw with Alfreton Town.

Goalkeeper Max Dearnley had an important role to play in securing that point, saving Tom Denton’s spot-kick in the second half.

Reflecting on that game, Dearnley said: “I think on the whole it was a good result, we battled for 90 minutes.

“We started a bit slow, but then we just built into the game and took the game to them really.

“It’s massive (the first point), it just gives us a platform really for Tuesday, it gives us confidence that we can keep a clean sheet, here, at home, and so that gives us a lot of confidence going into Tuesday’s game.”

Looking ahead to the visit of Fylde, who were defeated 3-1 by Banbury United at the weekend, he added: “I think it’ll be a different game, I can’t imagine there’ll be as direct as Alfreton.

“I can imagine they’re going to want to get it down and play, so we’ll speak about it and adjust to how we want to play.”

Bobby Johnson returned to fitness at the weekend, starting and playing 80 minutes against Alfreton.

Kian Scales is available for selection after joining from Bradford City on an initial one-month loan.

Tom Allan misses out as he serves the final game of his suspension.
