Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth is excited to be facing Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson in the Carling Cup tonight.

As a striker with Wimbledon and Bolton Wanderers, Holdsworth enjoyed plenty of battles with Ferguson's United over the years.

He said: "I think it is an honour - we have worked really hard. We are in a cup competition to get as far as we can and we have now earned the right to play Manchester United.

"I am loving it. I can't wait to see the man (Ferguson), I have met him a few times and have played against Man United a few times and won and scored against them.

"I have enjoyed those occasions and I want more of it, I'm hungry for more and it will make me hungrier that we have the greatest manager in world football coming here."
