Neil Baker says Crewe fear no one heading into the home game against Leeds whilst Leeds's Glynn Snodin looks for his team to pick up points away from home.

Baker was speaking as we prepare to host Leeds United at the weekend. With Leeds on a six game unbeaten run and ourselves on a run of one defeat in nine games it promises to be one of the games of the weekend.

After picking up some excellent results against teams in the hunt for a play-off place we now face the real quality of the top six, with Leeds, MK Dons and Millwall to come in the next seven days.

Baker told BBC Radio Stoke that there's no reason to fear these teams:

'We've looked a decent team and we've got to do so for the next few matches as well.

'We don't go in with any inferiority complex against any of the next teams that we're going to play.'

eanwhile Leeds United first team coach Gary Snodin pulled out the typical 'everyone wants to beat Leeds United' excuse, as if we're more than happy to lose to Carlisle.

Speaking to leedsunited.co.uk Snodin said they're looking for points on the road after failing to win their last five away games.

Crewe are on a good run at the moment so it will be tough.

'Everyone always wants to beat you - you get it for 46 games, whether it's at home or away. We have gone some way to making Elland Road a fortress now, but we have to pick up points on the road.'
