The young Seasiders will be looking for a repeat of last season's heroics, when they reached the semi-finals of the cup competition.

But they have a tough ask on their hands to beat a Derby side who have won nine out of their last 10 games, a run that includes a win away at Liverpool.

Both sets of supporters will be located in the west stand, with the tie kicking off at 7pm.

The game comes on the back of a 6-0 league defeat away at Wigan Athletic on Saturday, although the team fielded featured a number of U16s.

The likes of regulars Will Avon, Owen Watkinson, Nathan Shaw and Ewan Bange all sat out the match in preparation for tomorrow's game.
