Michael Turner knows Sunderland can't take any matches for granted as they aim to kick-start their season.
The Black Cats have taken just 11 points from 12 games and picked up just two wins all season, a run of form that has left them only two points clear of the relegation zone.
Saturday's home game with Fulham was seen as the start of a period of four fixtures where the Wearside outfit could take maximum points.
However, the London club came away from the Stadium of Light with a hard-earned 0-0 draw.
Further meetings with Wigan, Wolves and Blackburn are next on the agenda for Steve Bruce's side, but defender Turner is taking nothing for granted.
He said: "People have made a lot of these four games that we have got and think we should be winning them all, but they are tough games.
"It doesn't matter who you are playing, home or away, it's a tough game in the Premier League. Fulham have got some very experienced Premier League players.
"We knew it was going to be a tough game and I felt we slightly edged it and we did deserve to win the game, be we didn't do so. But we need to keep cracking on."
