Live on Motherwell TV today.
Hatate’s been down for around 5 minutes now after getting kicked in the face. He’s shielded by the medical folk so don’t know if it’s a gash around the eye or what.
Liam Scales is doing a decent job in fairness to him. Good to see.
It’s on Celtic TV also.
Willie Collum being himself here.
Thought tbh hatate went down too easy that last time.
Decent save by Bain there after Celtic switched off at a defensive freekick. A very obvious dive to “earn” the freekick of course.
A lot of moves breaking down with Yang or Hatate. Yang is raw & a bit erratic, while Hatate could still be rusty but he’s too casual at the same time.
Yeah thought we did ok for most of that half without actually creating much. But Yang hasn’t really done well with a few balls into space for him and looks a little tentative after losing out a few times. Hatate hasn’t really settled earlier. One or two nice touches but a bit wasteful still.
Missing a winger like Jota who has technical ability & knows when to pass it, dribble etc. Maeda is like a more polished & harder working version of Yang. But both their games are based around running & working & they lack some guile. It’s a little predictable at the moment & not helped by slackness from Hatate in particular too. No need to panic yet.
Forrest for Yang. Not surprised to see Yang taken off but, even with Abada injured, it seems a bit of a retrograde step to see Forrest getting game time. Think Palma is on the bench.
Run a bit down the wing, cut inside, and either misplace a pass or get tackled. Rinse and repeat.
Has he not given a foul on the keeper?
This could be a goal after the check.
Sure your man was 10 yards offside
Maeda with a wild attempt.
Phillips on for Lagerbielke. Probably with an eye on midweek as Lagerbielke is suspended & Phillips has barely played.
Another good save there from Bain
Some bend on that
