Sir Alex Ferguson is refusing to take anything for granted even though Monday's trip to Blackburn marks the start of three games on the trot against sides mired in relegation trouble.
With QPR and Wigan to come over the Easter period, Manchester United look well placed to take maximum advantage of Manchester City's recent dip in form.
But Ferguson said: "We know how quickly football can turn on you and bite you. You can look at all the fixtures and say all those teams are fighting for their lives. And they are the kind of games you know will be tight."
