Ainsworth's dream tie

21 November 2013

Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth says he couldn’t have wished for a better FA Cup second-round tie.

Ainsworth’s men will entertain his former club Preston North End on Saturday 7th December after a convincing 2-0 win at Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday.
The 40-year-old scored 15 goals in 111 appearances during three memorable spells with the Lilywhites.

“The FA Cup is a tournament that I hold in high prestige,” he said. “It’s a special competition so to get through to the next round and face Preston North End is fantastic for me.

“It’s a dream tie for me. I’m not sure we could have got a bigger tie for me personally. It’s a club I played over 100 games for in three different spells.

“It’s a really special one, but not just for me as we’ve got Stuart Beavon coming back too.

“It’s going to be a fantastic day and the lads deserve that, but we’ve got Chesterfield first and we’re not looking past that one at the moment.”

Tickets in the seating areas for this match cost £17 for adults, £12 for seniors and ages 19-25, £5 for ages 8-18 and free for under 7s. There’s also a family ticket available (two adults & two juniors) for just £30.

Meanwhile, a ticket in the Greene King IPA Terrace will cost just £15 for adults, £11 for seniors, £9 for ages 19-25 and £5 for ages 8-18.

Season-ticket holders will have their seats reserved until 5pm Friday 22nd November, after which time they will go on general sale.
