The Dons are without a win in three matches and laboured to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Accrington in front of a frustrated Kingsmeadow crowd in League Two on Saturday.

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.
