Jimmy Calderwood believes holding home advantage in their final UEFA Cup group game has given Aberdeen a massive boost as they try to reach the last 32 of the competition.

FC Copenhagen visit the ´Granite City´ on Thursday night needing just a draw to advance from Group B but, despite being bottom of the table, the Dons know victory at a sold-out Pittodrie will take them into the knockout stages.

Copenhagen have sold only 300 tickets, in stark contrast to the 33,000 who filled Parken Stadium and watched their defeat to Atletico Madrid earlier this month, and Calderwood said: "I was in Copenhagen for their game against Madrid and the crowd was fabulous in a wonderful stadium on a very cold night. They backed their team to the hilt so I am sure their players will miss that."
