Bennett boost for Derby ahead of Youth Cup tie
DERBY County Under-18s will again be boosted by the services of Mason Bennett for their FA Youth Cup fourth round tie against Ipswich Town tomorrow.
The young Rams will get another run-out at Pride Park Stadium (7pm), weather permitting, following their 4-0 victory over Gateshead in the previous round.
Bennett played in that game and will be made available to Academy manager Darren Wassall once more, despite his involvement in the first-team squad.
The 16-year-old recently became the club's youngest ever senior goalscorer, netting in the 5-0 FA Cup win over Tranmere Rovers earlier this month.

"It will be the same squad as the last round," said Wassall.
"Mason has trained with us, so he will be fit and raring to go – if selected."
Seventeen-year-old midfielder Will Hughes is still eligible to play in the competition but will not be involved.
With Derby's Moor Farm training ground covered in snow, Wassall's squad trained on one of the outdoor pitches – with undersoil heating – at St George's Park near Burton yesterday.
"It was a great opportunity for us, as it was the first time in 10 days that we'd been able to play on grass," Wassall added.
Admission to tomorrow's game is free for season ticket holders from both clubs. Otherwise, tickets are £3 for adults and £2 for concessions.
