THEY MAY have just beaten two of the Guinness Premiership's title-chasers in successive weeks.
But match-winner Tom Williams insists Harlequins will not be taking basement boys Bristol lightly when they visit the Memorial Ground on Sunday.
Quins followed their win at London Irish a fortnight ago by beating leaders Gloucester 14-9 at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday.
And with games against Newcastle (twice), Worcester and Saracens following Bristol, Quins have a great opportunity to nail a play-off slot in the coming weeks.
But Williams, who bagged the winning try against Gloucester, warned there can be no let-up when they take on struggling sides.
He said: "We can't look too far ahead. Bristol are next up, which will not be a stroll in the park.
"They are a wounded side at the moment, and you take them lightly at your peril.
"Our preparation for Bristol will be no different to facing any other side.
"They've still got great players like David Lemi, Dan Ward Smith, and Adrian Jarvis, one of our former players, and they have a more than useful pack of forwards.
"Our focus will have to be as good as it's been the past few weeks if we are to come away with a win.
"Away wins are difficult anywhere in the Premiership and you can't afford to take your eye off the ball.
"We haven't got the best record at the Memorial Ground, so there won't be a problem getting up for it."
Williams' try three minutes from time, which departing fly-half Chris Malone converted, made it three Premiership wins on the bounce for Quins.
It was also the third successive game Quins denied the opposition a try, and Williams sees that defensive steel as essential if they are to keep challenging.
He said: "You look back at Quins' history and you generally see them as mid-table, beating the teams below them but not the teams above them.
"Now we've put back-to-back victories against top four opposition it's a big motivational boost. They are the sort of performances that can propel us into the top four.
"The last two games have come down to good defence."
A peach of a try from former All Black fly-half Nick Evans got Quins off to a flyer against Gloucester.
And Williams puts Quins' growing maturity down to quality signings like Evans adding to the youthful exuberance already at the club.
He added: "I think we are evolving and maturing, yet we are still young enough to develop a lot more.
"Players like Nick Evans and Chris Malone have given us the added guidance and direction that has led to us evolving a more all-round game.
"Mine wasn't exactly the hardest try in the world - I was about a metre out. I've scored five tries this season and the total distance must be about eight metres.
"But I think it's my reward for my consistency and playing well."
