Ferguson added: "I felt we started the game well. The first 30 minutes we were very strong. The only thing that I was disappointed in was that we should have been a couple of goals at least up.

"I said to the players make sure you concentrate because the last five minutes of the first half I thought they had a couple of chances, which I didn't want.

"We knew we'd have to weather periods where they would throw the ball in the box but I thought we did that very well.

"It was a good goal, we should have had more, a clean sheet, the second on the bounce which is vitally important.

"I thought in the first 30 minutes we showed our strengths and played some really good stuff, caused them all sorts of problems and just needed that goal. John has got us the winner again."
