Matthews hoping Celtic can kick off good home run

The reigning SPL champions defeated St Mirren 2-0 on Saturday to end a four-game winless run at Parkhead and the full-back is keen to build on that in the coming months
Celtic defender Adam Matthews is hoping his side can build on their first home win in two months and make Parkhead a fortress again.

Goals from Victor Wanyama and Gary Hooper helped the Hoops to a 2-0 victory over St Mirren on Saturday, ending a winless home run spanning four games in the process.

And the 20-year-old is keen to use the win as a springboard, with Neil Lennon's side four points clear at the top of the SPL.

Matthews told Celtic TV's Huddle Online: "I think we played better than we normally have done at home this season.

"Teams come here and make it difficult for us and so far we haven't been able to break them down. But we showed we could do it against a good team and hopefully we can get a run going at home now.

"We have got a game in hand and if we win that we go seven points clear. That's a healthy gap so hopefully we can get a run going and build that gap."
