Assistant manager Neil Baker believes Crewe's League Two double over Cheltenham will count for little in Sunday's play-off final.
Alex beat the Robins 1-0 twice this season, the latter victory the sole blotch on their opponents' current run of five wins in six outings.
A club-record streak of 18 unbeaten games steered the Railwaymen to Wembley, but Baker is expecting a tough encounter against a side he holds in the highest regard
"When I saw them at Burton early in the season I thought they were the best team in the league.
"We've had two close games against them, but we couldn't have faced a harder game. When you look at (losing play-off semi-finalists) Torquay and Southend, I think Cheltenham are better than both of them.
"They've come on a good run and so have we, so we probably are the form teams. They're a big, strong side that have got pace and power and got some good players. It's going to be a good game, I'm pretty sure about that."
