DUDLEY Town boss Dean Whitehouse feels the pressure is off his side as they fight to turn their fortunes around.

The Robins are in a relegation scrap after a poor start to the season saw previous manager Andy Allardice step down with Town second-from-bottom of the West Midlands Premier League.

Dudley have picked up a big win over Cradley Town since Whitehouse took charge but haven’t been able to build on that to edge away from the division’s dangerzone.

Their game at home to Shifnal last Saturday was called off due to a waterlogged pitch as another chance to build momentum was washed away.

They are due to take on Studley away in the Mid-week Floodlit Cup on Tuesday before going to Smethwich this Saturday.

Whitehouse said: “I don’t think there is much pressure on us to be honest.

“I’ve come in here to try and turn things around and I think we are doing that slowly but surely, so I won’t be putting too much pressure on myself either.

“Everyone expects to beat us so we don’t worry about who we are playing. We treat every game the same and as just another opportunity to pick up three points. Either way we learn from it.”
