The most successful manager in Peterborough United’s history will be back at the ABAX Stadium on October 24.
Darren Ferguson, who led Posh to three promotions between 2007-2010 & 2011-2015, was today (October 16) appointed manager of League One strugglers Doncaster Rovers. Doncaster travel to Posh a week on Saturday.
Ferguson takes over a Doncaster side 20th in League One. His first game in charge is a home game against Bradford City tomorrow (October 17).
Ferguson told the official Doncaster FC website: “I had a good break and I think I needed it, but the timing of this job is perfect. I’m absolutely raring to go.
“Have I got the tools to work with? Absolutely. That is clear.
“I believe in the group of players that are here. Promotion is and has always been the aim.
“I play a way of football that is attractive for the fans, that’s very important to them and that’s what I expect of my team.
“Fans want to be entertained. “They spend their money, they come to watch us and they want to be entertained. That’s the type of football I want to play.”
Ferguson, who has appointed former Posh midfielder and coach Gavin Strachan as his assistant manager, led Posh to back-to-back promotions from League Two to the Championship in his first spell at the club and returned to take them up from League One again in 2011.
Ferguson was sacked by Posh last February after a miserable 3-0 League One defeat at MK Dons.
