A member of the public required pitch-side CPR after falling ill during the Johnstone's Paint Trophy fixture, but Ferguson's team doctor has confirmed that he is making a recovery.
"It was surreal really, it was very tough. The most important thing that has come out of tonight is that the gentleman is going to be okay, thank goodness. He had CPR for a long, long time," Ferguson told Sky Sports News.
"I just said to the referee with two minutes to 'We'll just call it now and that'll be us', but I think he did the right thing getting us back on.
"When someone's life is at stake, football is irrelevant, and without at doubt I think everyone in that stadium is pleased that it looks like the gentleman has recovered."
