Ellis In Team Of The Week (6/3/18)

Ellis In Team Of The Week (6/3/18)

Carlisle United are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected following the clash with Grimsby Town.

The performance by Mark Ellis in the two nil victory over Grimsby Town at the weekend at Brunton Park was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.

I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Ellis was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.

'Ellis scored the second of the Cumbrians` two goals in their home triumph over Grimsby - a good day all-round for the defender, who also helped the hosts pick up a clean sheet.'

It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Ellis for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the points.

Full Team:

Jason Steele (Sunderland), Kean Bryan (Oldham Athletic), Mark Ellis (Carlisle United), Brad Halliday (Cambridge United), Joe Lolley (Nottingham Forest), Stefan Johansen (Fulham), Luke Russe (Bristol Rovers), Erhun Oztumer (Walsall), Patrick Bamford (Middlesbrough), Bobby Reid (Bristol City), Sean Maguire (Preston North End).

Manager - Ritchie Wellens (Oldham Athletic).
