Ellis previews Grimsby clash

11 March 2019

Centre-back Mark Ellis says Tranmere Rovers must focus on themselves in the League Two Play-Off race as the season enters its closing weeks.

James Norwood’s 26th goal of the season in all competitions earned Rovers a fourth straight win in a 1-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra in front of the Prenton Park crowd, as TRFC moved up to fifth in the fourth-tier.

And with Grimsby Town making the trip to the Wirral on Tuesday night, Ellis knows that Micky Mellon's side can’t look at other teams around them in the hunt for a Play-Off position come the end of the campaign.

Ellis said: “We can only worry about what we are going to do, we couldn’t care less about what teams are doing around us unless we are keep winning and picking up points.

“We have got to focus on ourselves and not worry about other teams and hopefully we can go and get the three points on Tuesday.

“We are working hard as a team and picking up points. I’m enjoying myself and enjoying my football.

“Everyone is together, and it is vital that we are, and it is vital that we do that.

“The fans have been great all season and you can’t argue with that, they are the 12th man, every team that comes here, they get behind us and credit to them.”

Ellis also reserved special praise for forward Norwood, who fired in his late strike to see off David Artell’s Railwaymen.

He added: “There wasn’t really much in the game to be honest, they’ve made a mistake and Nors has got in and scored.

He works hard, people talk about him, he runs his socks off, he’s in the right place at the right time and he’s scoring goals.”
