Coppell: Good times ahead for Rams
Published : 23 Apr 2009 12:00:00
Coppell was impressed by the turn out for his side's 2-0 win over the Rams at Pride Park on Tuesday evening - a game watched by 31,345 predominantly Derby fans. With County's final home game of the season against Charlton on Saturday expected to be a sell-out, Derby's lowest home attendance of the season will be 25,534 for the 2-2 draw against Preston on a cold Tuesday night in November. Speaking after his side's victory at Pride Park, Coppell said: "Derby is a terrific club. You think on a Tuesday night with 31,000 inside the stadium and if we'd have brought a proper compliment of fans it would have been 32,000 or 33,000. "Its a magnificent effort by the Derby public and I'm sure its hard for them to see at the moment, but if they keep supporting in these numbers, with Nigel (Clough) at the helm you can only see good times ahead for them."
