Ferguson praises Blackpool despite call-off

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Ian Holloway deserves to be applauded for the job he is doing at Blackpool.

Temperatures dipped below minus eight last night meaning the Seasiders' attempts to make the pitch playable, using protective covering and hot-air blowers, were in vain.

The story is too old to be commented.
