Ticket sales for the Julian Dicks benefit match against Athletico Bilbao are still only crawling along according to the ticket office.
Only 8,500 tickets have currently been sold for the game which takes place the Sunday after next - that's under 2,000 since we last spoke to the ticket office on July 21st.
Despite the current low figure, the ticket office are confident that enough fans will turn up on the day to ensure a reasonable attendance.
"We're selling about 150 a day at the moment" a ticket office spokesperson told us this morning. "But we expect a good number to walk through on the day."
Many fans reacted angrily when the ticket price of £25 was originally announced. Several have decided to boycott the game in order to express their dissatisfaction at the price which has been labelled "greedy".
