Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson believes his side will benefit from using Manchester United's facilities ahead of their League One play-off final against Huddersfield.

With the Red Devils squad in London ahead of Saturday's Champions League final against Barcelona, Posh have been able to make use of their plush training facilities and get accustomed to Old Trafford.

"It's been key to be able to train at Carrington and to have a walk around Old Trafford," Ferguson said. "We'll also get together and watch the Champions League final."

He added: "Old Trafford is a fantastic theatre - it is called the Theatre of Dreams - and it's a magnificent stadium. When you walk out of that tunnel and look up it seems to go on and on forever. It's important the players get a feel for it.

"The players have to handle the situation when they walk out in front of 70,000 fans.

"I think they will be fine, we have players in the team who will think 'I'll have a bit of this' and I'm hopeful they'll go on and put in the right performance. The players know if we can perform we will be hard to beat."
