Meanwhile Celtic put a huge dent in Spurs’ title aspirations with a 3-1 win on Friday evening. Ryan Stewart, Robert Smith and Neil Fenwick scored for the hoops with an own goal counting for the milkbags.

Whitedale kept their challenge well on track with a 5-1 demolition of Delting. Richard Sinclair and Piotr Drozdowski both got doubles and Jamie Wilson weighed in for the West Siders with Leighton Flawsreplying  for Delting.
