The Alex play host to promotion hopefuls MK Dons at Gresty Road this weekend, aiming to close in on the top six.

Ellis, who could return to the starting line-up for the visit of the Dons after missing Tuesday's 4-1 win over Bradford, believes the Railwaymen can push on in the second half of the season.

He told the club's official website: "We have a good enough team to really push on. We just have to keep battling away and keep on winning games. The manager wants to manage at the highest level he can. He wants to push on in his career with us and we want to be there.

"We are three points off the play-offs. We have a good set of players who want to work hard for the club.

"I set myself a target of playing every league game and I have done that so far, so I hope to keep that up and get a few more goals as well."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
