Wilson - Expect the unexpected

05 April 2011 05:30

Celtic full-back Mark Wilson expects more twists and turns in the title race following Dundee United's shock win at Ibrox - but he is desperate to avoid an "unbearable" final-day shoot-out.

The Hoops received a boost following the late postponement of their Clydesdale Bank Premier League game at Inverness on Saturday when David Goodwillie netted a last-gasp winner against Rangers.

Referring to Dundee United's victory over Rangers, Wilson said: "It was obviously a good result for us. We were actually on the training pitch so we didn't know much about it until later on. It's a good feeling when unexpected things like that happen. But I think there are going to be slip-ups from both teams and that was the first one from Rangers."

He added: "I hope we can go on a good run where we don't lose games but it's going to be very difficult with the number of games and especially the situation with some pitches the way they are just now, it's tough.

"The pitches haven't been great, that's not the clubs' fault, it's the weather conditions. Our training pitch has been ripped up now.

"The obvious place, we found it very difficult at Motherwell. We didn't play well that day and didn't deserve anything but it was a very difficult surface.

"St Johnstone's pitch wasn't great earlier in the season and you've seen the problems with Inverness with games being called off.

"I'm sure all these factors will add up, but not just for ourselves, for Rangers, Hearts and other teams who are chasing to get in the top six and avoid relegation."
