Alan Hardy expects a great atmosphere for FA Cup tie

“Based on my own experience at Leicester City, I believe clappers add a great deal to the matchday atmosphere,” Hardy said.

“Not only do they boost noise levels within the stadium but they're also great for the younger supporters, many of whom will take their clapper home as a keepsake.

“I recognise they're not for everyone, however, so, in the interests of democracy, I thought it best to put it to the public vote on Twitter.

“No matter the outcome, I'm sure there'll be a terrific atmosphere inside Meadow Lane for what should be a really exciting cup tie.”
