Fergie Delighted By Progress
Sir Alex was happy with United's 2-0 win at Villa Park despite the below par performance.
The Reds left it late, with the usual Rooney-Ronaldo duo sealing the victory in the third round of the FA Cup. However, the manner of the victory does not matter at this stage, according to Fergie.
'It was a great result for us. We knew this was going to be a tricky round,' he told Sky Sports.
'Aston Villa have been in fantastic form. It was a really tight cup tie, but we've managed to squeeze through.
'The name of the game is to stay in the Cup. I've had taken a replay gladly because I couldn't see a goal coming.
'We've squeezed through by the tightest of margins.'
