ADAM Dugdale insists all the pressure is on league leaders Wolves ahead of a key clash on Saturday for both clubs.

Fresh from a vital 2-1 victory over Crawley, Crewe will hope to gatecrash a potential promotion party for the visitors down Gresty Road.

And the 26-year-old central defender insists the Alex are well-equipped to expose any complacency from Kenny Jackett’s men.

“They are a massive club in this league,” explained Dugdale.

“You only have to see their away following and the crowds they get at home; they are a Premier Leagu club really.

“But we need the points and the pressure will be on them to come and turn us over.

“We’ve had some decent results over the season.

“We’ve beat Preston away and beaten the likes of Sheffield United and MK Dons at home.

“I know the lads will be buzzing to try and get that second back-to-back win of the season “We can’t go thinking anything else.

“Hopefully we’ll get the rub of the green, keep believing and get the right result.”

Dugdale believes it’s all still to play for with five games still to go.

Only four points covers the bottom seven.

“It does seem a lot tighter than normal,” he added.

“There are seven or eight teams that could go down and we’ve got to make sure we are not one of them.

“We’ve got to pick up as many points as we can and keep doing the hard work on the training ground.

“If we can keep fighting until the end of the season, I’m sure the results will come.

“It’s that never-say-die attitude.

“We showed it at Crawley and now we have to again.

“We were under pressure and they scored a wonder goal but we dug deep, got the goal and saw the game out.

“We’ve got to relish these games and I’m not even looking at next season.

“I just want to make sure I can help to keep Crewe in this league “I’ve had some good years here since returning.

“We’ve won at Wembley twice and I wouldn’t want a sour note on my time here.

“It would be a big achievement to stay up from this position and something everyone is concentrating on doing.
