Maloney knows their work in staying up is far from done.
He set a target of nine points from a tough-looking run-in, which starts with Monday's visit to in-form Arsenal. Maloney said: "We are out of the bottom three which we haven't been for a while, but the main goal is to stay up.
"Wednesday was an historic night for the club as it was the first time we beat United.
"But it's more important that we stay out of the bottom three come the end of the season.
"It was a massive win. We knew we needed to win one of our three games against the top-four, top-five sides and we've done that. It was a brilliant.
"We've got a hard game coming up against Arsenal, so we will focus on that. It feels good to be out of the bottom three finally."
