Legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was spotted watching Stevenage FC's League One clash with Peterborough United on Tuesday night.

Sir Alex's was at the Lamex Stadium to watch a high-flying Peterborough side managed by his son, Darren Ferguson, take on Boro, who have exceeded all expectation so far this season, currently sitting in the play-off places.

Separated by just one point with Stevenage in fourth and Posh in fifth, the clash was billed a key game for both sides.

And Sir Alex surely would have been impressed with the home side's start as goals from Luther James-Wildin and Ben Thompson has Steve Evans' side 2-0 up at half-time.

But Peterborough fought back, first through Joel Randell's strike, before defender Ronnie Edwards grabbed a late equaliser with a little under 10 minutes left.

Ferguson was spotted sat in the West Stand alongside Peterborough legend Barry Fry, with the pair seen sharing a laugh as they watched on.

Sir Alex is considered one of the games greatest ever managers, winning 38 trophies during his 26 year spell at Manchester United, including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, and two UEFA Champions League titles.

Stevenage fans will be hoping he imparted some of his wisdom on Steve Evans, not that the Boro boss needs it after guiding his side to a brilliant promotion from League Two last season.

Evans actually stood opposite Ferguson in the dugout back in 2011, when his non-league Crawley Town side lost 1-0 to United at Old Trafford.
