Perth Glory Chief Executive Paul Kelly is confident Saturday-s blockbuster against Celtic at nib Stadium will be played at the venue.

Mr Kelly, Celtic officials, the Town of Vincent and Allia Venue management, all inspected the ground today, after the Channel 7 News helicopter was used to dry the ground after heavy rainfall that has damaged the surface.

“There-s still a lot more work to be done, Kelly said.

“I think where we-re at is that three quarters of the area that-s in jeopardy will be OK and there-s probably another quarter that-s still very soft under foot and it-s retaining water underneath.

“I-m 90 per cent sure the game will be here it-s just that one area that needs a lot of work.

“We-ll probably call it first thing in the morning. Celtic will have to come down and have a look themselves at the pitch but I-m sure they-ve played on far worse pitches in far north Scotland.”

Celtic officials will visit the stadium tomorrow morning.
