Sir Alex Ferguson admits he has an abiding affection for derby matches.

The Manchester United manager enjoyed one such encounter at the weekend when his high-flying side defeated Blackburn, and he has another local fixture after the two-week international break when his side face Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

"You cannot beat derby games, the spice of it all," he said at the North West Football Awards ceremony. "London clubs have been complaining their derbies were killing them. Up here, you have seven of them and it is fantastic."
