Celtic striker Anthony Stokes reckons the team's display against Ross County has prepared them for Wednesday's match with Elfsborg.

Stokes scored both goals in a 2-1 victory at Celtic Park on Saturday, as the Hoops looked their sharpest since the players returned from their pre-season break.

Neil Lennon's squad travel to Sweden defending a 1-0 advantage from the first-leg of their Champions League qualifier with Elfsborg, and Stokes is confident going into the tie.

"It is probably the best we have played since we came back from pre-season after such a short off-season," said Stokes.

"The goal probably woke us up and we got at them for the rest of the game and made plenty of chances but we just didn't take them.

"For long parts of the game I thought we might not get the goal but we kept at it and we broke them down eventually and when you win games it breeds confidence.

"There are a couple of us still getting up to 100 per cent so it was a good work out against Ross County and we are looking forward to Wednesday."
