Manager Simon Grayson knows the importance of the results over the Easter weekend but insists nothing is won or lost during this period as his side look to build on their eleven game unbeaten run.
"I think over the years, in every division, everybody sort of looks at the Easter period. After the Easter games you're really down to the last sort of four or five games and that's obviously the crucial time for everybody.
"Again I don't think anything will be won or lost but obviously there might be some defining results right the way through the divisions, not just our league.
"It's a bit like the Christmas period, if you can come out with lots of points it certainly helps you in your quest for promotion, getting away from relegation or into the play-offs so I think that's how people look at it.
"We've got two tough games against two teams that are looking to get into the play-offs, Rochdale are in the play-offs, so we know it's going to be a tough task for us but obviously we're looking to keep building on what we have done so far."
