Striker Lee Novak rescued Town with a late goal, their first in 359 minutes of football, and after losing four of their previous five matches Grayson's side limped into the play-offs as Scunthorpe hit the woodwork three times.

Grayson said: "It doesn't matter what happens before, it's what you do in the play-offs themselves that counts.

"I've been involved in teams that have finished third, fourth, fifth and sixth as a player and a manager with different outcomes.

"There's no right or wrong way to get there and once there it's a lottery. Ultimately it's how you end up that matters."

Grayson added: "It's been a long season for them physically and mentally and the unbeaten run probably took a lot out of them mentally. They reached the play-off final last year and didn't get too much time off in the summer. We need to get a bit of spark back."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
