John Coleman is ready for Derby County – and is fired up by some commentators dismissing the Reds.
Frank Lampard’s Championship side Derby beat Southampton on penalties in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round last night and will now come to the Wham Stadium a week on Saturday, live on BT Sport at 12.30pm.
“I watched the game and was fascinated with the commentaries as they implied that whether Southampton or Derby went through, they don’t have to turn up to face us,” said Coleman.
“It will make for an interesting conversation in the dressing room. Everyone was dismissing us, people can say what they want but we fancy ourselves against anyone at home.
“If we get it right on our day, we are a good team and we are not in that much of a lower league.
“If we play well at home, we are difficult to beat and hopefully we are good next week.”
