NO OLD PALS ACT FROM DEREK TO DAR­REN

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

CHILD­HOOD friend­ships were put to one side as Derek Adams’ Ply­mouth came out on top against Dar­ren Fer­gu­son’s Don­caster.

The fact that the duo have ended up fac­ing each other in op­po­site man­ager’s dug-outs is prob­a­bly no surprise when you con­sider that Adams’ fa­ther Ge­orge was the first sign­ing of Sir Alex Fer­gu­son – Dar­ren’s fa­mous dad – for East Stir­ling­shire in 1974 be­fore serv­ing Fer­gu­son se­nior as a coach at Aberdeen.

Gra­ham Carey’s stunning opener and Jake Jervis’s sec­ond-half penalty proved to be enough to see the Pil­grims re­place Rovers at the sum­mit of League Two.

How­ever, the drama didn’t end there as Liam Man­dev­ille missed a late penalty for the vis­i­tors and Don­caster skip­per James Cop­pinger was dis­missed.

On this ev­i­dence there is ev­ery chance that both sides could end the sea­son in the top three, es­pe­cially if Ply­mouth can keep hold of Carey.
