Crewe have won four of their last five games and Pope, who has scored eight goals this season, has no intention of asking for a rest.
"I have shin splints so it's not helping me," he told the Sentinel.
"After every game, I am struggling to walk, but I can keep playing through.
"The only cure is rest, but so long as the team is doing well, I don't see it being a problem. There will be plenty of time to rest at the end of the season."
