NO OLD PALS ACT FROM DEREK TO DARREN
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.
