Neil Lennon wants his Celtic side to go for the win against Elfsborg in their Champions League qualifier.

The Hoops have a 1-0 advantage heading into the game, having won the first match at Celtic Park, and know that a draw will see them safely through.

Lennon however has insisted that the Scottish champions are looking for a win as they attempt to build upon last season's successful European campaign. 

"We have won one, and we don't have to win, a draw will suffice but we are here to win this tie," said Lennon.

"Last season has given us the experience, we have been down that road before but it counts for nothing." 

Celtic's second leg tie will take place at the Bores Arena, which has an artificial pitch that could add an element of uncertainty to the fixture.

Lennon's side have thus far looked good value for money in their competitive fixtures, but know that Elfsborg will have to be treated with respect if they are to ensure victory.

Celtic keeper Fraser Forster added: "They came and sat back last week which they obviously won't do this week."

The Bhoys also got their SPL campaign up and running at the weekend, with two goals from Anthony Stokes – including an 87th minute winner – securing victory for the reigning champions against Ross County.
