Ferguson said: “We kept playing our football, some of which was fantastic, and dominated the second half.
“Some of the football we played was absolute quality, really top class. We’ve got a magnificent chance now.”
He added: “We’re in front and they know that – it’s a really big game now.
“They have got a really difficult game on their hands now. We are chasing the Premiership and this is the biggest boost we could have got.
“Scholes’ pass for Rooney’s equaliser was fantastic, just a little flick but what a pass.”
