A Big, Big Victory For United
Sir Alex believes United clinched an important victory today at Middlesbrough. There are only four games remaining in the league and United are six points clear of Liverpool.
'It`s a big step forward, with only four games left now,' he said.
'I keep saying it`s about whittling the games away. Eventually there are no games left and hopefully we`ll be in that position at the top of the league.'
But it wasn't an easy game, according to the boss.
'Getting in front was the key to it.'
'I thought we`d have a great chance if we got in front because Middlesbrough are a young side, they`re at the bottom and nerves come into play when they`re playing Manchester United in that situation.
'They had to chase the game and that only opened the game up for us really.'
