Stephen Clemence will hope to see his young Hull City side make it through to the next stage of the U21 Premier League Cup when they travel to Derby County in the second qualifying round this evening.
The Tigers have already knocked Preston North End out of the competition and with the club’s promising crop of youngsters also showing some good form in recent reserve team outings, Clemence is looking forward to tonight’s clash.
“This is a cup competition we want to do well in,” said Clemence.
“We went to Preston in the last round and got a good result playing in a big stadium.
“It will be tough against Derby because they’ve got a very good academy, but if we can get through it might give the boys an opportunity to play in some more big stadiums.
“That is always nice for a young player. No disrespect to the grounds that they normally play on, but the lads dream of playing at the Anfields, Old Traffords and places like that as well as their own stadium.
“If we get through against Derby, we might get drawn to play at one of those.”
Tonight’s game will be played at Belper Town FC with kick-off at 7pm. Admission is priced £4 adults and £1 concessions. The winners of tonight's tie will be away to Blackburn Rovers in the next round.
