Rovers boss Ferguson: I've asked Dad for tips to get one over Arsenal manager Wenger

Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson has admitted he has asked his dad for some tips for when his side comes up against Arsenal in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Ferguson's father, Sir Alex, developed an historic rivalry with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger when the Scotsman was at the helm at Manchester United.

When asked if he had got some tips from his dad ahead of his meeting with Wenger, Ferguson said: "Yeah, I speak to him at length but obviously this game. He's going to be there, my mother is going to be there and my family so it's good, good for everyone.

"All the lads' families will be there but, like I say, it's important we go there and put on a performance."
