Ellis: Urges Crewe to push on

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."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
