Sir Alex Ferguson wants a Carling Cup last 16 meeting with son Darren, manager of Coca-Cola Championship side Peterborough.

Ferguson watched 10-man Manchester United book their place in the fourth round with a 1-0 win over Wolves at Old Trafford thanks to Danny Welbeck's 66th-minute strike. United will learn their next opponents in Saturday's draw and Ferguson is in no doubt who he wants.

"Peterborough at home," he said. "All the family should be happy with that."

Ferguson cannot expect an easier time than United had this evening, even though Brazilian teenager Fabio was sent off for a professional foul after less than half an hour.

The Red Devils made light of the imbalance in numbers and might have been in front before England Under-21 international Welbeck netted a stylish matchwinner, racing onto Michael Owen's return pass before sliding his shot past Marcus Hahnemann.

"It was a fantastic goal," purred Ferguson.

"There was some quality passing involved in the move and he took it really well.

"It was obviously a difficult job for him, playing with 10 men for so long, but the goal told you everything about the boy's quality. He earned it."
