Mark Ellis On Morecambe Clash

16 March 2015

Defender Wants To Get An Unbeaten Run Going

"We pride ourselves on keeping clean sheets and that's one thing we need to get back to doing," said Ellis.

"If we do that then we know we're going to win games because we've got the players to score goals."

And he believes that, providing Town can keep the goals out at their end, Micky Mellon's side have the firepower to score goals at the other.

Ellis scored the winning goal in the 1-0 victory over Morecambe at the Greenhous Meadow in December.

"We've just got to go into each game trying to win if we can and try to go from now until the end of the season without losing," said Ellis.

"We are where we are for a reason, and after a defeat you've got to bounce back without a doubt and go and win the next game.

"We've trained hard, put it (Saturday) behind us and go to Morecambe to try and win the game. I don't think there's any better time to go and do that.

"We'll have that fire back in our belly and want to do well and put it right.

"We know it's not going to be easy (on Tuesday). Morecambe are still in touch with the play-offs. They're certainly not one of the teams who are going to go down.

"They played us here (at the Greenhous Meadow) and gave us a good go. We managed to nick it but we're going to have to be ready for another battle again.

"Every team is going to cause us a problem from now until the end of the season, and we've got to be up for that."

And Ellis believes Shrews can return to winning ways at the Shrimps to start a good run of form from now until the end of the campaign.

Town head into the Sky Bet League 2 clash at the Globe Arena (7.45pm kick-off) looking to bounce back from the 1-0 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

Defender Mark Ellis insists Shrewsbury Town are looking to go unbeaten from now until the end of the season - starting at Morecambe on Tuesday night.
