Ferguson relishes Posh reunion

31 August 2017

Manager Darren Ferguson is looking forward to the prospect of hosting his former club Peterborough United at the weekend.

Ferguson spent two spells as manager of the Posh, which included three promotions and a Football League Trophy title, but says Doncaster is his club now.

“This is the longest I’ve been manager of a club after Peterborough, but my club is Doncaster now and after Saturday I hope they do well,” Ferguson said.

“I still live near the area and I’ll still look for their scores, there’s good people there, I had two fantastic spells there which were both fairly successful for the club and I do wish them all the best.

“We go up against them on Saturday and they’re in form, they are confident, they have started the season well but it’s early doors, if we get to the level of performance that I know we can then we can give anyone a game.”

Deadline day saw Rovers complete two loan deals, with Jordan Houghton returning to the Keepmoat from Chelsea, and left back Harry Toffolo joining from Sky Bet Championship side Norwich City.

“Harry comes in and ticks all the boxes, he’s got good experience at League One level and is capable of playing in various formations on the left side of defence,” Ferguson said.

“He played the other day and he has done very well in this league during his loan spells and that was the main thing for me about his experience at this level, I’m really pleased he’s come in.

“Jordan could start too, he’s only got 30 minutes and then another 60 minutes under his belt, the only thing is I’d have to be careful with giving him a full 90 straight away.”
