Wassall hoping for big Pride Park crowd when Derby County take on Chelsea in FA Youth Cup
ACADEMY manager Darren Wassall is hoping a bumper crowd will turn out to watch Derby County's FA Youth Cup quarter-final tie against holders Chelsea this week.
The sides will meet at Pride Park Stadium on Friday evening (7pm kick-off).
The Rams' 2-0 victory over Manchester City was watched by 1,256 spectators on Tuesday night.
"We've had great support at all the games so far and to have over 1,200 at the Manchester City tie earlier this week was brilliant," said Wassall.
