Let f: E → B be a map between closed connected orientable manifolds. In this note, we give a necessary condition for f to be a manifold fibration. In particular, we show that if f: E → B is a fibration where F=f−1(b), E and B are closed connected triangulated orientable manifolds and B is aspherical, then f|E(n): E(n) → B is surjective, where E(n) denotes the n-th skeleton of E and n=dimB.
