Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has warned title rivals Manchester City that his team will not crack on the run-in.

After picking up just seven points from as many Barclays Premier League away games, City have surrendered the initiative in the battle for domestic supremacy. The Blues could slip four points behind their fierce rivals, who visit relegation-threatened Wolves at the weekend, before they face a tough encounter with Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on March 21.

Following a 2-0 win over West Brom, Ferguson reiterated his belief in his side's mental resolve, and said: "We have that experience and it does help. We won't get nervous. Against West Brom we kept playing our football even at 1-0 when the fans were thinking 'just get us a second'. It didn't concern the players one bit. It is good to see that kind of temperament."
