Stuart Pearce has said that Ferguson once told him it would be great if all opposing fans could bring 15,00 fans to Old Trafford.

"I am sure Sir Alex will remember that night and offer us another 15,000 because I have got a feeling we would fill our allocation," He told the MEN.

"He did make that statement, I heard him, and it would be nice for him to throw the gates open for the derby because a lot of our fans would like to see the game."

He then said that City's brand of champagne football would play United off the park.

"We will have to match United physically and get in their faces as best we can," he said.

"It is a fantastic place to play your football but you have to be prepared to roll up your sleeves."
