Sir Alex Ferguson feels Manchester United may look back on Tuesday night's 3-2 win over Blackpool as a pivotal moment in their season.
Trailing by two goals at the break, United rallied through a Dimitar Berbatov double and a Javier Hernandez effort to claim a victory that took them five points clear at the Premier League summit.
It was one of those thrilling fightbacks for which United are famed. And Ferguson knows how important such against-the-odds triumphs can be.
"We were in the mire in the first half but this is a result industry and we got a result which may have a big impact on the league at the end of the season," said Ferguson.
"It has told every one of my players they can achieve a lot if we can play to our best."
