Derby u18s v City: FA Youth Cup preview

Derby u18s v City: FA Youth Cup preview
City continue their FA Youth Cup quest at Pride Park on Tuesday night with Derby County standing in the way of a place in the quarter-finals.

Attilio Lombardo’s men have successfully negotiated ties against Sunderland and Burnley on the way to the fifth round but now face the conquerors of Gateshead and Ipswich Town.

We caught up with Ireland youth international goalkeeper Ian Lawlor and England U19 defender Greg Leigh at Carrington to get their thoughts ahead of the game.

The incentive of a quarter-final tie at home to Chelsea awaits the victors of the game, so it promises to be a fiercely competitive encounter and we’d like to encourage as many fans as possible to come down and support the boys.

Seasoncard holders are able to attend the game for free, while it will cost £3 for non-seasoncard holding adults and £2 for children.

Kick-off at Pride Park is at 7pm.
