Sir Alex Ferguson has responded to the issue of the amount of injury time played but says that managers just need to get on with, however frustrating it is when it goes against you.

“I understand the frustration of Mark Hughes as the manager on the receiving end of a very late goal,” said Ferguson. “But City had the better of the first half and we battered them after the break. I’ve given up trying to understand how the fourth official and referee work out added time. I’m sure there is method in their madness. The big issue in the derby centred on the time added on with nearly seven minutes on top of normal play. However infuriating it is when it goes against you, we managers have to get on with it.”
